Keep America Beautiful, a nonprofit which envisions a country in which every community is a clean, green and beautiful place to live, presented the Steel Recycling Institute (SRI) with a 20th Anniversary Recognition Award at the national nonprofit’s annual National Awards Ceremony, which took place during the Keep America Beautiful National Conference in Washington, D.C.
In addition to SRI, more than 80 individuals and organizations from communities across America were presented with Keep America Beautiful’s National Awards, which recognize the passion, dedication and impact of Keep America Beautiful’s affiliates, partner organizations and volunteers from across the nation. Established in 1953, Keep America Beautiful consists of a national network of more than 620 statewide and community-based affiliates whose programs, initiatives and efforts, supported by millions of volunteers, help transform public spaces into beautiful places.
“As you all know, the Steel Recycling Institute has been a longtime champion of Keep America Beautiful,” said Keep America beautiful chief development officer Michael Rogers in presenting the award to Keep America Beautiful board member Jim Woods, who is senior director, sustainability communications, American Iron and Steel Institute. “Now, we’re fortunate to have the ongoing support of SRI through our friend and board member, Jim Woods.”
SRI has been a sponsor of Keep America Beautiful’s National Conference with the highly anticipated “Steel This” session, in which Keep America Beautiful affiliates share successful program ideas with one another.
