Bodum Receives Green Good Design Award
August 25, 2011,
NEW YORK-Bodum has been recognized for achievement in sustainable design by the 2011 Green Good Design awards competition. Six distinct French Press coffee makers were awarded with this international seal of eco-friendly design excellence.
"We are delighted that the brew system renowned for producing true, flavorful coffee is now also recognized for its inherent earth friendly features," said Thomas Perez, president of Bodum USA, Inc. "The Bodum French Press method - an example of good design at its finest - is considered to be one of the 'greenest' ways to brew coffee as the process itself is entirely manual and does not require the use of disposable paper filters. From product design to production to our day-to-day activities, we are proud to be an eco-friendly corporation and this prize is a great testament to our commitment to the environment."
The Green Good Design awards, granted by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies recognizes products, services, programs, ideas and concepts that forward exceptional thinking and inspired greater progress toward a healthier and more sustainable universe.
