Trio Of Manufacturers Honored For Preserving The Environment

Connecticut College, New London, Conn., has honored three U.S. manufacturers for their ability to combine environmental stewardship with jobs, productivity, and profits. The eighth-annual Connecticut College Inherit the Earth Awards honored these three companies: Winchester, Va.-based Trex Co. was awarded the gold medal for the manufacture of Trex Easy Care Decking -- an alternative to decking lumber; Argo Management Group, Colorado Springs, Colo., took the silver medal for production of AMG 2000 motor oil -- a completely biodegradable vegetable-based motor oil that is less toxic and produces fewer emissions than petroleum motor oils; and Redmond, Wash.-based Greendisc won the bronze medal for recycling all forms of electronic media such as obsolete products from software publishers.
