gillsHuge congratulations to Gills Traditional Fish & Chips, Cobh who recently won an environmental award for their efforts in using sustainable packaging as part of their business operation.

On Thursday 5th December the Cork Environmental Forum honoured the shining examples of environmental action in Cork city and county with an Awards Ceremony at the Firkin Crane Centre in Shandon, Cork city. The award ceremony recognised and acknowledged both individuals and groups for their commitment to incorporating more sustainable way of living and doing business.

It was the 13th year of these awards and amongst the distinguished guests at the Awards Ceremony that participated in the presentations were the Deputy Lord Mayor, Cllr. John Kelleher, Mayor of the County, Cllr.Noel O’Connor, Dr Shane Colgan, EPA, Mr Dermot Cunningham for CIT Clean Technology Centre and Ms. Colette O’Flynn, National Biodiversity Data Centre.

Gill’s Traditional Fish and Chips in Cobh became a customer of ours this july and we were delighted to hear of their win at the environmental awards in the Business and Commercial category!! They use a range of our fully compostable packaging so that they can implement a more eco-conscious business operation.

The Cork Environmental Forum:

Established in 2001, the Cork Environmental Forum Awards honour the sometimes little known actions of groups, organisations and individuals around the county that have contributed to the health or richness of the Cork environment.  The awards are split into different categories according to different pillars of society, nominations are accepted from CEF members and any member of the public for actions that are in keeping with the spirit of sustainable development and community resilience.  CEF introduced the Cork County Community Garden Award in 2009.
