Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful Earns a “High Five” for Best of Gwinnett

For the fifth year in a row, Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful (GC&B) has been honored as Best of Gwinnett in the Charitable Organization category.

Chosen by a combination of readers’ votes and editors’ input, the nationally recognized Keep America Beautiful affiliate represented the only environmentally focused nonprofit on the list of local charities.

GC&B has built a following among local students, county residents, corporations, municipalities, civic organizations and a volunteer network that’s 100,000 Gwinnettians since its launch in 1980. The organization regularly engages citizens to reduce, reuse, and recycle; protect watersheds; pursue sustainable practices at home, school, and work; and clean, restore, and beautify public places.

Spanning more than 20 broad business and community sectors, the Best of Gwinnett process begins each March with a nomination on the award program website and concludes when voting ends on December 31. The award program vets readers opinions and tens of thousands of votes before those receiving the most votes are deemed “Best of Gwinnett.”

“We are truly grateful to Guide to Gwinnett for providing this platform, and to each and every person who cast a vote in our favor,” said Schelly Marlatt, Executive Director for Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful. “It’s recognitions like this that tell us all our hard work within this community we love is getting noticed.

“Although we’ve been in the business of creating cleaner, greener, more livable communities throughout the county for more than 40 years, there is always more work to be done,” she continued. “We deeply value our many supporters and love our role of fostering an up-and coming generation of environmental stewards through our Green & Healthy Schools program and Green Youth Advisory Council. No matter the age of our advocates, together, we can ensure the health of Gwinnett’s air, water and soil for decades to come.”
