City of Industry, CA – [April 2, 2012] Bentley Prince Street, Inc. has received its third Evergreen Award from the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) Integrated Workplace Acquisition Center (IWAC) since 2001.

Every year the GSA IWAC invites environmentally conscientious business partners to participate in its Evergreen Award program, which was developed to recognize efforts in recycling, affirmative procurement and waste reduction that can set an example for other IWAC business partners to follow. The Evergreen Award itself “closes the recycling loop” in that it is made from recycled glass.

Forty businesses were considered for the 2011 Evergreen Award. The award was presented to one business in each of the following categories: furniture, furnishings and floor coverings, technologies and electronics, sports and recreation and small business. Five of the categories considered in evaluating nominations are: Waste Prevention, Recycling, Affirmative Procurement, Environmental Preferability and Model Facility.  Bentley Prince Street has been awarded the Evergreen Award three times since 2001.

“This is such an incredible honor and one I am proud to share with all our associates,” says Anthony Minite, president of Bentley Prince Street. “This award says to our customers and to the world that we truly care about the impact our actions have on the environment and we are doing everything in our power to protect the planet.”
