November 10th in New York City, Ecover hosted a party to celebrate thirty years of producing ecological cleaning products … and also announced the Grand Prize Winner of its 30 Under 30 Contest!
The 30 Under 30 Contest was open to anyone under the age of thirty making strides in the area of sustainability. Dozens of ecological trendsetters submitted their names, and a panel of esteemed judges narrowed the field to thirty finalists which was announced on October 30th. The public had one week to vote for their favorite green leader (from November 1-5).
At 7 p.m. during the 30 under 30 event, Ecover CEO Mick Bremans made the much-anticipated announcement: Ryan Arnold was named the WINNER of the 30 Under 30 Contest. Ryan, a self-proclaimed “energy geek,” helps low-income citizens in Idaho reduce their energy costs.
At Environment furniture’s showroom (not only the amazing venue but also the provider of the grand prize: a choice of a bedroom or dining room set), the eco-elite gathered for a night of great food, while wine was brought to us from Lapostolle, and soda provided by Dry Soda.
The Green Blogger Conference held thereafter was a panel discussion on the future of sustainability. It was shared by panel moderator Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff of EcoStiletto, and Meaghan O’Neill of Treehugger and PlanetGreen.com, Jill Fehrenbacher of Inhabit, Starre Vartan of Eco-Chick, Brian Howard of The Daily Green (Co-Author) of Green Lighting and Ryan Arnold.
In addition to announcing the grand prize winner, the event also served as a thank you for all who participated which included the finalists and the judges. All of the top thirty finalists were invited to attend the event and were awarded a year’s supply of Ecover cleaning products.
Ecover would also like to thank businesses who displayed or demonstrated their products: Jane Iredale, Waterpik, Tom’s of Maine, and Zhena’s Gypsy Tea.
It was a night to look back on Ecover’s success … and to look toward its future as a world-leader in sustainable business practices and ecological cleaning! Finally, we hope that our 30 Under 30 Contest Winner, Ryan Arnold, will continue to change the world and make it a better place!
