Green America is proud to launch the latest cycle of our People & Planet Awards, rewarding green businesses nationwide for their contributions to a just and sustainable economy.
We’ve designed this season's awards to honor green businesses that produce recycled products… and we need your help. Between now and July 6 (at 8PM EST), we’re collecting nominations.
Tell us why your favorite small, green business should win. You may nominate any green business you wish, but your nomination must explain BOTH how your choice is a sustainability leader in general AND how your choice is a recycled-products innovator. Your nominee may manufacture with recycled paper, plastic, metal, fabrics, wood, or any other material that might surprise us; they might find ways to give new life to something that seems like waste, like old clothes or used cooking oil or broken parts of household appliances.
Use your imagination in selecting a nominee. Please be as descriptive as possible in explaining why your nominated business is good for both people and the planet. [See our rules for more about eligibility.]
From the nominations, our panel of green-business experts* will select 10 finalists. We’ll share the stories of the finalists, and conduct a run-off vote in August for three winners who will each receive a prize of $5,000. We’ll announce the winners in September.
Good luck to all of the nominees, and thanks for your submission!
