People & Planet Award for Green Businesses
The People & Planet Award recognizes US small businesses for their dedication to a green economy: a bottom line that includes protecting workers, communities, and the environment. Twice each year, we award two $5,000 cash prizes in a range of green business categories, such as zero-waste, worker empowerment, and sustainable food.
Following nominations by the public, our top five business nominees for the Award each quarter are determined by our volunteer panel of judges: Justin Conway, Calvert Impact Capital; Tess O’Brien, Clean Power Perks; Erlene Howard, Collective Resource, Inc.; Dale Luckwitz, Happsy.com; Jonathan Reinbold, Organic Valley; Martin Wolf, Seventh Generation; and Scott Kitson, Beth Porter and Fran Teplitz of Green America.
The next award cycle will begin in Fall 2019.
