ATLANTA — At Keep Georgia Beautiful's annual awards luncheon on Nov. 2, Reaping Nature Educational Outreach Foundation, a Forsyth County-based organization, received second place for waste reduction by a nonprofit.

Keep Georgia Beautiful's awards program honors those whose ongoing efforts in community improvement, waste reduction and litter prevention exemplify leadership in protecting Georgia's environment.

The KGB mission is to build and support community environmental activities and behaviors resulting in a more beautiful Georgia.

The awards program is based on the belief that positive reinforcement of hardworking and deserving individuals advances KGB's mission and is a key way to create sustainable communities.

In 2011 and 2012, Reaping Nature's programs, which include recycling presentations, community recycling events, contests for children and environmental clubs, engaged and educated over 2,700 adults and children, and have helped to divert an estimated 4,900 gallons of paint, a ton of paper and 18,000 pounds of e-waste from landfills.
