Garden on the Wall® Wins a Planet Positive Award
Fairfield, NJ – Garden on the Wall (GOTW) announced today that one of the firm’s installations won Honorable Mention in the prestigious, sustainability-focused 2023 Planet Positive Awards by METROPOLIS, in the Walls & Ceilings Category.
Recognizing creative projects and products worldwide that benefit people and the planet, the Planet Positive Awards honors firms and professionals leading the way to greener architecture and design. Winners are chosen by expert panels for their impact on climate change, ecosystem health, human health, and equity.
“We are thrilled with our Planet Positive win,” John Ozturk, GOTW’s Director, Architectural Sales/Chief Sustainability Officer. “Sustainability and making contributions to the betterment of human and environmental well-being are integral to our efforts. Recognition of the positive impact of our green garden installations is very important to us.” Ozturk went on to add that the win is coincident with the launch of the firm’s ReLeaf program, a unique initiative to reduce, reuse, and recycle its older gardens for charitable new purposes. “We believe that it is our responsibility to reduce waste and natural resource use while creating beautiful and functional spaces for our clients. Our commitment to the circular economy means that we are constantly looking for ways to reduce waste and reuse materials in innovative ways,” continued Ozturk.
According to GOTW’s Mine Hisim, Founder & Managing Partner, the firm has to date installed all-natural gardens in over 1,500 workplaces nationwide. “Recognition of the desirability of our high-quality, all-natural biophilic installations in modern workplaces is a testament not only to our expertise, but also to the importance employers are placing on creating more mindful workplaces for the benefit of employees and overall productivity,” said Hisim. “Further adding to our sustainability bona fides is so rewarding, and yet another leaf in our cap.”
Sustainability is a big part of GOTW’s ethos and a steadfast commitment for every garden they create and install. The firm’s unmatched safety and sustainability credentials, unparalleled visual and longevity standards, and pioneering work in the world of neuroarchitecture similarly contribute to GOTW’s pioneering position in biophilic installations in the workplace.
