New location, cause for Hemp & Co.

Times Colonist
The space is newer and greener and Hemp & Company has decided to use its new Government Street digs as a launch pad for a new environmental award.

 The 15-year-old Victoria retailer, which works to expand awareness of organic and eco-friendly clothing, nutrition and bodycare, has launched the Eco-Hero contest in order to shine a light on entrepreneurs, volunteers and community leaders who make a positive mark on the environmental landscape.

“We wanted to recognize people who are involved in environmental issues and we thought what would be a good way to support them and get the community thinking,” said Bill Finley, who runs Hemp & Company with wife Lorna Knowles. The company will be taking nominations until Nov. 23 for individuals and then the community will be able to vote for their favourite between Dec. 1 and Jan. 31. The winner will be announced Feb. 5 and will win an “awardrobe” of Hemp & Company gear.
