Israel’s most prestigious environmental prize will be presented at the organization’s eighth annual award ceremony set to take place at 5:00pm on March 24th at the Gat Theatre in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Mr. Gil will be recognized for his outstanding achievements in environmental activities.

In their efforts to initiate meaningful social changes in their community, SOURCE dedicates 5% of its net profits to social and environmental activities in its surrounding environs.
