We are proud to announce that The Stakeholders, Inc. has selected The Rosenblum Companies as the organization’s 2017 Community IMPACT Award recipient in the “Sustainable Communities” category.  The Sustainable Communities award recognizes an individual, business or group project for demonstrating leadership or innovation in programs or principles that advance sustainability and environmental stewardship in the community.

The Rosenblum Companies was nominated for the IMPACT Award by Ecovative, Inc., a locally based biomaterials company.  Rosenblum was the first commercial landlord to utilize decorative MycoBoard™ and MycoFoam™ wall tiles manufactured by Ecovative in lieu of traditional artwork for its office buildings.
