Environmental Respect 2017 Kicks Off Enjoying an American Pastime
Following months of planning and scheduling, the 2017 Environmental Respect Awards (ERA) celebration kicked off in fine fashion as more than 50 attendees from across North America and around the world gathered in Wilmington, DE – home to program sponsor DuPont Crop Protection – to celebrate being named regional winners. During the week-long event, ag retailers from 11 countries will learn more about American agriculture, visit historic cities such as Philadelphia, PA, and ultimately find out which ag retailers have been named Ambassador winners – the highest honor given to Environmental Respect participants each year.
This year’s program started with Environmental Respect Award attendees going to an all-American venue to start celebrating – a baseball game between the Wilmington’s Blue Rocks and the Potomac Nationals. Despite enduring a two-hour rain delay, the game eventually got underway and all the participants seemed to enjoy the night’s activities.
