Gutter Mate win the Green Apple Environment Award

Gutter Mate won a Green Apple Environment Award in the national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities.

The family business offers a range of rainwater recycling products, including the Gutter Mate rainwater diverter which director Haydon Robinson invented. GutterMate was entered to the prestigious Green Apple Awards after winning ‘Best Recycle Project’ at last year’s Hertfordshire Green Awards.

They competed against more than 500 other nominations and will be presented with their Green Apple Award at a glittering presentation ceremony in the House of Commons on November 12. Gutter Mate director Mark Robinson will be attending. “We are delighted to have won this award and are looking forward to the presentation evening.”

As a result of this success they have been invited to have their winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their experience.

Gutter Mate will also be considered to represent their country in the European Business Awards for the Environment.

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.

Judges for the Green Apple Awards are drawn from the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
