WCBS 880It’s exciting to win awards, especially when nominated by peers in your city. That’s why the 2012 CBS-880 Radio (metro NY’s most listened to radio on the am dial) Women’s Achievement Award is a really sweet win for our CEO & Founder Sharon.  The award carries with it an event at City Winery on Varrick Street, NYC on December 5th, radio previews announcing  the event, speaking for a minute and a broadcast interview that will run 12/3 thru 12/7, with Pat Carroll.  This all means lots of opportunities to talk about what the ECOBAGS brand is and what Sharon is passionate about. Sharon said, “it’s all about touch-points. We founded ECOBAGS Brand in NYC because we were (and are) passionate about cleaning up the city by getting plastic litter off the streets and out of the waste stream. It wasn’t a sexy message 22 years ago but now waste reduction and socially responsible businesses are. It’s great to be recognized because it gives us another opportunity to reach and create even more eco-minded citizens.” CBS 880 Radio is awarding Sharon and 4 other exceptional women who are leaders in business and in their communities. Thanks CBS!

BTW- the first place Sharon ever worked in NYC was with CBS 60 Minutes!

And here’s an end note – the radio announced Sharon on 11/28. The same day the office got a call from people in Belle Harbor in NY who were hard hit and are still recovering from Hurricane Sandy. They heard what Eco-Bags does and called in for help with a donation of overstock bags.  We’re so happy they called and that we can help them.
