SYOSSET, NY -- Emerald Brand has named Southern Refreshment Services a winner of its fifth annual sustainability awards.

Each year, the company recognizes its clients who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to implement sustainability programs through the use of Emerald Brand's Tree-Free, compostable and BPA-free products and Emerald Ecovations' environmental programs.

Southern Refreshment Services, a Canteen franchise based in Tucker, GA, delivers solutions in office coffee services, micromarkets and pantry services to many of Atlanta's top corporations, universities, hospitals, and other business and industry accounts. By converting to Emerald Brand's sustainability program, providing eco-friendly products for pantry, foodservice and micromarket operations, Southern Refreshments reportedly saved a total of 152 trees, 3,247 lbs. of plastic, and 37,954 gallons of water.

Southern Refreshment Services reportedly maintains a strict recycling program in its warehouse and is constantly upgrading the efficiency of the vehicles in its fleet. All of its machines are Energy Star rated and use LED lighting.

"There has never been a time when consumers and businesses were so united in their desire to protect and enhance the environment. Southern Refreshment Services is a recognized innovator in their field and they share our vision of what clean, sustainable and environmentally sound products and practices should be," commented Emerald Brand chief executive Ralph Bianculli.
