Community Forklift (and our friends at Amicus Green Building Center in Kensington) have made it into the TOP TEN NATIONALLY in Green America‘s People & Planet Award.

We were selected from over 100 businesses from around the country this winter.  The judges chose finalists who represent “an overall green way of doing business, and also shine in their commitment to helping create green and healthy homes.”  Now, the public gets to choose the winners.

Green Collar WorkersHere’s the really cool part:  if we win, we’ll receive $5,000!

And the Forklift sure could use that prize money… our shop is overflowing, but we’ve recently been offered unfinished space in a nearby warehouse.  If we win, the prize money can help with cleaning and fixing it up.  We can finally explore some exciting possibilities – like a paint recycling program, an upcycling workshop space, or job training in deconstruction! 

We’d be so grateful if you take a second to vote. Thank you!

P.S. – Don’t worry – you can vote for both Community Forklift AND Amicus Green Building Center – there will be 3 prize winners, so we’re happy to share the spotlight with our friends!
