Mayor Greg Ballard and the Office of Sustainability announced today that Sara Snow will emcee the Indianapolis Sustainability Awards luncheon to be held Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2010.

"Sara Snow's success in educating and motivating people throughout the country to live in harmony with the environment is inspiring," said Mayor Greg Ballard. "It's fitting that she will present awards to deserving individuals and businesses who also are working to inspire others to adopt the concept of sustainability. I'm thrilled she's agreed to be a part of the first-ever Indianapolis Sustainability Awards."

A graduate of Butler University, Snow worked at WXIN-TV as a morning news reporter before landing two subsequent natural living television series on the Discovery Networks, "Living Fresh" and "Get Fresh with Sara Snow." In addition to providing green commentary and tips in newspapers and magazines such as The New York Times and Better Homes and Gardens, Snow recently authored a book called "Sara Snow's Fresh Living" and travels the country speaking to groups on the small changes they can make to live greener, healthier lives.

"I'm thrilled to be a part of this incredibly important moment in Hoosier history," says Snow. "Not only do I love applauding people who are working to make green and natural living more accessible for their neighbors and those around the globe, but I'm absolutely thrilled to be doing that right here in Indianapolis."
