On the heels of a state environmental award, The Grasshopper Company received special recognition in July from the Green Biz Wichita organization for accomplishments in sustainable manufacturing and adoption of sustainable concepts in product design.
 
Green Biz Wichita is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable, environmentally-friendly concepts among businesses in the greater Wichita area, which is the largest metropolitan area in Kansas. The organization chose The Grasshopper Company as their featured member in August.

The Pollution Prevention Award, or P2 Award, was presented to Grasshopper in July by the Kansas Department of Commerce in recognition of both raw material conservation through investments in enhanced manufacturing processes and for the MaxTorque Clean Diesel campaign, which enables the company’s customers to reduce fuel consumption and air emissions while increasing productivity and profitability in lawn care practices.
