BLANCO receives a prestigious IDGA for its SOLON Compost System. The award is presented by New York House magazine at GreenBuildingsNY (held in June at the Jacob Javits Convention Center) and honors the greenest materials and most sustainable innovations in every category, from soft goods to lighting, appliances and building materials.
According to Nancy Meyer, Editor for New York House, “BLANCO’s SOLON Composter was selected by a panel of independent judges as outstanding among all the many entries in the “other products” category. They really felt that composting is crucial and that this product makes it easy for consumers.” The panel of five experts from architecture and design vetted the international field of entries and debated the environmental impact and issues surrounding each product. The panel agreed that composting is an important practice that needs to be brought to consumers’ attention, and that BLANCO’s SOLON is not only functional and convienient – it actually encourages composting.
The Blanco SOLON compost system is comprised from the highest grade recycled stainless steel. SOLON effortlessly collects organic waste below the counter and its stunning design allows homeowners to beautifully incorporate green living into their kitchen.
“We are honored to receive an Innovative Green Design Award for SOLON,” says Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for Blanco. “The SOLON Compost System is an eco-friendly way to bring the beauty of BLANCO from the kitchen to the garden and we are thrilled to be recognized for this.”
