On Monday, October 26th, Keep Houston Beautiful presented Air Alliance Houston with a Mayor’s Proud Partner Award for the production of the 10th Anniversary Earth Day Houston Festival. The 31st Annual Mayor’s Proud Partner Awards recognize those whose projects have made lasting contributions to Houston’s environment and quality of life.
The 2015 Earth Day Houston Festival and its ancillary events created a forum wherein local, sustainably-minded organizations and citizens can come together to share ideas. Each year, the event — which features more than 100 business and nonprofits, and draws annual attendance of approximately 15,000 — creates awareness, stimulates dialogue, and fosters creativity in the realms of air, water, land, wildlife, healthy living, recycling, commerce, art, food, and more.
The award was received by Air Alliance Houston Office Manager Paige Powell, on behalf of the Former Earth Day Houston Festival Director Sara Heald. For a full list of award recipients, please visit the Keep Houston Beautiful website.
