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

People & Planet
Green Business Award

Thanks to everyone who nominated a green business to win one of our Summer 2014 People & Planet Awards.  The nominations period is now closed.  Our panel of judges* will winnow the nominations to a slate of ten finalists, to be announced on August 1.

Sign up for our e-newsletter to be the first to find out who made it into the Top Ten.

Voting amongst the Top Ten will continue throughout the month of August, with three winners -- who will each receive a $5,000 prize -- to be named in September.  The People & Planet Awards are conducted seasonally, so remember to check back for the next phase of our contest in the fall.  If your nominee doesn't make it into the Top Ten for the summer contest, you can nominate them again.
