MEMPHIS, Tenn., Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TruGreen is proud to announce it has received an Environmental Stewardship Award from the National Association of Landscape Professionals. The National Association of Landscape Professionals Environmental Stewardship Award honors companies who have sustained a significant commitment to enhancing and protecting the environment.
TruGreen was recognized for its "TruNeighbor" program, a nationwide public-private partnership program the company launched in 2014. TruNeighbor works with local community leaders to plant trees, build new pocket parks, and to restore parks, playgrounds and ball fields that have fallen into disrepair. The program also helps support technology initiatives to control storm water runoff, and works with neighborhoods to build community gardens, forage areas for pollinators and more.
TruGreen has also partnered with several environmental organizations nationwide to help pass common-sense fertilizer regulation laws that help protect water quality. TruGreen is planning additional initiatives in the area of "smart" water use in recognition of water as a precious resource.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by the industry for our work in environmental stewardship and sustainability," said Jeff Fedorchak, vice president of corporate affairs. "I think our customers appreciate knowing their loyalty to TruGreen means they are active partners in the environmental and community restoration investments we make."
