Congratulations to Green America's People & Planet Award winners! Thanks to all who nominated and voted for green businesses to win our fall People & Planet Award. This season’s award focused on businesses that help people green their homes—an increasingly important step we can all take to protect our health and the environment.
The two winning businesses represent very different aspects of having a green home—the use of non-toxic cleaners and the use of flooring, paneling, and hardwood products from urban tree services that otherwise would send that lumber to a landfill.
Nature’s Magic is a woman-owned business in Athens, GA that produces plant-based, non-toxic cleaners. Using mostly organic ingredients, the company works to ensure that its products are safe for people, pets, and the planet. With the award, they plan to expand their reach throughout their home state of Ohio and beyond.
Eutree is a lumber supplier and sawmill that diverts urban tree “waste” into beautiful flooring and other products. Based in Villa Rica, GA, the business reduces demand for forest timber, thereby saving trees and decreasing the amount of lumber sent to landfills. The award will help them install log collection containers at tree service locations so they can much more efficiently obtain the lumber they need for their products.
Each winner will receive $5,000 to support the mission of their green business. Stay tuned for our next People & Planet award cycle in Spring 2019!
