SustainableHIGH POINT, N.C. - The Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC) announced its first-ever design awards, #GetYourGreenOn. This annual competition honors interior designers who specify sustainable and healthful home furnishings for their clients’ residences. One of the categories includes outdoor spaces, such as dining, lounge and kitchen areas. The other two categories are shared and private spaces.

Part awards program and part social media campaign, #GetYourGreenOn launches in 2016 as SFC celebrates its 10th anniversary, a milestone that marks a decade-long commitment to promoting healthy environments both inside and outside the home.

Entries will be featured in SFC’s social media channels and educational programming leading up to the fall season. The six #GetYourGreenOn winners will be announced during a special anniversary celebration on Friday, Oct. 21, during fall High Point Market.

Both SFC-member and non-member interior designers and design firms are eligible to enter #GetYourGreenOn. Residential interior design projects completed between Jan. 1, 2015, and March 31, 2016, qualify, and entries must feature at least one product from an SFC-member manufacturer or supplier.
