Winners of the fourth edition of the Devon Environmental Sustainability Awards (DESA) were announced this past weekend at the Devon Business Expo. Congratulations to Keep it Clean & Green for being selected as the first-place winner of this year’s award and to Mainstreet Mud for being selected as the runner up.

The DESA recognizes businesses for their commitment to environmentally friendly practices within their business.

“It is great to see businesses like Keep it Clean & Green return after finishing as a runner up last year,” said Ray Ralph, Mayor for the Town of Devon. “We hope to see even more of our Devon businesses enter to win our Environmental Sustainability Awards next year and share environmental initiatives.”
