BALTIMORE, MD (February 27, 2013) The Maryland Green Registry today kicked off its first "Look for the Logo" photo contest.  Members of the Registry are asked to snap a photo of their displayed Registry logo and send the picture to MDE. The contest will continue through spring 2013 with the contest winners being randomly drawn during the Registry's annual leadership awards event in early June. Contestants need not be present to win.

The Maryland Green Registry is a voluntary program launched by Governor O’Malley in 2009 as part of the Smart, Green and Growing Initiative to promote and recognize sustainable practices by organizations throughout the state. The free program offers tips and resources to help organizations set and meet their own goals on the path to sustainability. Members share their environmental best practices and results through online profiles to demonstrate their commitment and to inspire others to green their organization. There are currently 360 organization members. Collectively, Registry members have saved over $65 million annually through their sustainable practices.
