Global Sports Alliance-New York team captain, Kevin Trotta, has been honored with the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Environmental Quality Award, the highest regional recognition the Agency presents to the public. In honor of Earth Day, the US EPA recognizes individuals and organizations who have dedicated time and energy to “protecting and enhancing environmental quality” in EPA Region 2, which includes New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and seven federally recognized Indian Nations.
Kevin was selected for his efforts in promoting environmental awareness and action in the world of sports and recreation. Projects have included local, regional and national initiatives to link sports-related activities with environmental stewardship and to introduce and advance GSA’s Ecoflag campaign.
“I am honored that the EPA has recognized the work of GSA-New York,” said Trotta. “and honored also to be an Ecoflag ambassador and member of the GSA family of environmental champions around the world.”
