A signature event was held at the Arizona Biltmore where winners, finalists and community members celebrated the importance of a trustworthy marketplace. Keynote speaker Elaine Birks-Mitchell, CEO/Chief Sustainability Officer of The Bra Recyclers, shared her reason behind the creation of her social clothing recycling company, and how the impact we make in our community is one of the biggest drivers for social entrepreneurs.
“Honesty builds trust, which is a vital aspect in the success of a business. For 21 years, BBB has been recognizing outstanding companies in Arizona for their solid commitment to doing things the right way and we are so proud of our 2022 winning businesses,” said Shelley Bradley, Director of Signature Events for BBB Serving the Pacific Southwest.
