Congratulations Hummingbird Wholesale on being named the 2019 Bold Steps Award winner! In addition to their ongoing commitment to providing a wide array of organic foods, comprehensive employee benefits and thought leadership in the food industry, Hummingbird stood out because of their work to make the new Mahonia Building a very sustainable structure, complete with straw bale construction and reused materials throughout.

More about the Bold Steps Award: Each year, businesses that operate with a triple bottom line approach–measuring success based on how they support their employees and their commitment to environmental stewardship, in addition to their economic prosperity–are nominated for the award. The winner is selected based on these criteria and additional innovative sustainability actions that set them apart in their respective industries. The Bold Steps Award is a partnership between BRING’s Rethink program, Eugene Mayor Lucy Vinis, and the City of Eugene.
