Green America: Growing the Green Economy for People and the Planet

People & Planet Award for Green Businesses
Choose three businesses to win a $5,000 prize.

Green America is proud to introduce the eight finalists for this spring's People & Planet Awards. Each of the finalists in this round of the awards was chosen by a financial professional at a community development bank or credit union* from among their green-business clients. These financial institutions make it their goal to lift up communities, a mission that includes providing financing for small, green businesses that often have been turned away from conventional mega-banks.

Finalists are expected to represent both an overall green way of doing business, and shine in their commitment to both social and environmental responsibility. Please review the businesses below, and cast your votes for your three favorites by 5PM EST on Saturday, May 31. (Only three votes per person, please.)

Good luck to all of the finalists, and thanks for your commitment to people and the planet!
