Plantronics and Cityblooms have recently been named as finalists for a 2015 Acterra environmental award for the cityblooms-logomicro-farm at Plantronics. The nomination is in the “Environmental Project” category.

“We are honored to be recognized amongst such an amazing group of finalists for the 2015 Acterra Awards. Plantronics and Cityblooms are pleased with the initial results of our collaboration and are looking forward to helping other institutions in the Bay Area implement similar sustainable projects.” — Nick Halmos, Cityblooms founder

Acterra’s Business Environmental Awards is one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s oldest and most prestigious environmental recognition programs. Initiated in 1990, it is considered a heavyweight among award programs due to its rigorous application and judging process.
