Carbondale, CO — Here at Rock and Ice we're concerned with the state of the world. It's no secret that the future could be hotter than a two-dollar pistol firing uphill unless we start respecting Mother Earth. The next generation is facing new challenges brought on by our shortsighted use of resources. On the plus side, there's a sea change occurring as individuals and companies address the imbalances that are affecting the planet and the people who live on it. Sure, there is a long way to go before we've solved all the problems and today's solutions are simply the first steps toward sustainability.

Some seeds of change have already been planted as companies find ways to be green, socially conscious and profitable. Rock and Ice would like to acknowledge these first steps with a new award. The Sprout Award will be given to companies who are in some way, big or small, supporting the environment or are socially aware — either with their products, their manufacturing processes, through education or in other ways.

Yep, this is only the beginning, but we have to start somewhere. In fact, the beginning is always the most vulnerable, least impressive point on the continuum of change. That's why it's important to watch out for the sprouts. One day they'll grow into the mighty oaks of real change.

Please let us know what your company is doing to support the earth, or the people who inhabit it, and we will consider you for an upcoming Sprout Award.

Thanks!
