The City of Florence, AL honored Centiva by nominating them for a Green Corporate Citizen Award, sponsored by Greenstar Recycling. Rachel Mansell, Education Outreach Coordinator for the City of Florence stated, "We nominated Centiva because they are a forward thinking company that realizes that sustainability and "being green" aren't just ways to market their brands; they are ways to cut costs, boost profits, and help the environment along the way." Centiva is active in local community environmental efforts including Adopt-A-Mile, Shoals Earth Month, Inc., Florence City Schools Litter Critter Contest, and a recent sustainable beautification project. They are a City of Florence Green Team Partner. They were selected as one of three finalists from over 60 entries nationwide.

"As an American manufacturer, it is important that we take care of the community where we live and work," said Erin Dempsey, Public Relations - Environment & Strategy at Centiva. "Through The Centiva Green Way, we are committed to leading environmental responsibility and to showing our employees, customers, and neighbors that sustainability is a priority."

Centiva is honored and excited to be selected as a finalist and looks forward to the Corporate Recycling & Waste Conference in Orlando, FL on September 12, where the winners will be announced.
