OUR MOST SINCERE AND HEARTFELT THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!
All of us here at Mountain Rose Herbs are overwhelmed and truly honored to be the recent recipient of the 2008 Co-Op America Peoples Choice Award and we would like to thank the thousands of individuals who voted for us, even against the seemingly impossible odds.
Thousands of people nationwide took part in a Co-op America online questionnaire to select their favorite green businesses which included AlterEco, Frontier Natural Products, GAIAM, West Paw Design, and many more.
With help from all of the people who took time out of their busy day to vote for Mountain Rose Herbs, we had graciously received an overwhelming amount of the votes, making us the recipient of this prestigious award.
Co-op America's Green Business of the Year Award identifies businesses that are committed to social and environmental responsibility, and only businesses that have passed Co-op America's screening process are eligible. Each year one business is selected by the public as the Green Business of the Year and Todd Larsen the Co-op America Corporate Responsibility Programs Director recently was quoted as saying, "We're pleased to announce that green consumers awarded the prize this year to Mountain Rose Herbs, which is focused on maintaining eco-friendly practices not only in their production but also in their shipping and office operations. Their green and sustainable practices are truly a model for other companies."
Upon hearing of the news Shawn Donnille of Mountain Rose Herbs enthusiastically replied with-
"The environmental ideals and practices incorporated by this company are an accurate reflection of the principles that all of us adopt and embrace on a personal level within our homes and communities. None of this would be possible without the sincere enthusiasm and commitment by each employee to make this company a paragon of environmental and social stewardship, and we could not do it without them."
Once again we would like to sincerely thank all of you for making this momentous and joyous occasion possible, and we are truly touched in a most profound way.
