A not-for-profit company which raises money for charity was highly commended in a prestigious award ceremony last month.

Fulham based company Giveacar was honoured in the Sustainable Waste category at the Sustainable City Awards 2013.

The ceremony, organised by the City of London Corporation and in its twelfth year, was hosted by eco-fashion ambassador Livia Firth.

The award-winning company, launched in 2010, is the UK’s first  car donation scheme which allows owners to get rid of their cars with the proceeds going to a charity of their choice.

“It is exciting to reward brands and retailers which put sustainability at the forefront of their businesses and we hope they will use this as an incentive to do more and more in this direction,” said Firth.

Other winners include Thrifty Couture, which won the overall prize as a result of their ‘upcycling’ clothing scheme, Marks and Spencer who took home the green gong in the High Street category and Fair Trade milliners Pachacuti in the Designer category of the newest award, Sustainable Fashion.
