Greenies handed out

This Way to Sustainability, the conference put on by Chico State and Butte College last weekend, recognized local champions of eco-friendly practices with the inaugural Greenies awards.

At a banquet Friday night (Nov. 2), Jessica Lundberg (pictured) accepted the business Greenie on behalf of Lundberg Family Farms, celebrating its 70th anniversary of growing rice. Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. founder Ken Grossman was honored individually, and the Butte Environmental Council won the Greenie for nonprofit organizations.

The awards were made of used and recycled glass, molded in a Chico State art class.
