Nature’s Perspective honored for environmentalism

March 26, 2014 -  By

Nature’s Perspective Landscaping, based in Evanston, Ill., was honored by the Evanston Environmental Association (EEA) as the recipient of the Charlotte Omohundro Award.

The award is annually presented to a person or organization that exemplifies the late Charlotte Omohundro’s dedication to community service in the area of the environment. Charlotte was an early promoter of environmental stewardship in Evanston, a co-founder of Keep Evanston Beautiful and a committed advocate of the Ecology Center.

“One of Nature’s Perspective’s core values is concern for the environment, and we are thankful to be recognized for our support of sustainable practices,” said Paul Klitzkie, general manager for Nature’s Perspective. “Some of the ways we do this are by using clean, renewable biodiesel to power our vehicles, capturing roof rainwater to irrigate our plant nursery and offering organic lawn applications to our customers.”

Rick Nelson, EEA president, chimed in on Nature’s Perspective’s commitment to the EEA.

“Nature’s Perspective has been a tremendous partner to the EEA in the past two years as we have worked to put on the Evanston Green Ball,” Nelson said. “We’ve been extremely impressed with their willingness to go the extra mile to make our event a success.  Additionally, our board is aware of their ongoing commitment to helping other local organizations succeed and make the Evanston area a more beautiful and natural place to live. Consequently, we think Nature’s Perspective is truly worthy of this very special award.”
