RENO, NV – WSPPN Coordinator Donna Walden was one of just two people nationally to receive a 2013 Pollution Prevention (P2) Volunteer of the Year award from the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable;. The 2013 Most Valuable Pollution Prevention (MVP2) awards were presented last week during ceremonies in Washington, DC to mark Pollution Prevention Week.

“Donna has captured the P2 spirit and helped advance our efforts in multiple ways,” announced Jeffrey Burke, Executive Director of the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable. “Donna leads the effort to connect with the business community through the GreenBiz.com P2 IMPACT column as well as co-chairing the green procurement workgroup. She truly meets the definition of P2 Champion.”
