Eric Hindes, supervisor of the machine department at Moots, sets a machine up for its next task inside the Steamboat Springs factory. Moots collects shavings and small bits of material and takes them to Denver where they can be recycled. The company, which also recycles cardboard and any other materials that can be reused or recycled, was honored as the Steamboat Sustainable Business Consortium's Business of the Year. The Animal Healing Center, a local veterinary clinic, earned the Outstanding Achievement Award.
