On May 8th, 2010, Daniel Swantek, co-founder of GreenLane, passed away in his sleep. Fortunately, his spirit and bestowed wisdom is carried on by those he touched. In this spirit, GreenLane created the annual Daniel Swantek Memorial Award. 

This $500 award was created to recognize a GreenLane non-profit member who provides sustainable opportunities in our community or who needs assistance in order to provide education toward sustainability.
