Nomination Deadline: Green America People and Planet Awards

This event has passed.

We’re celebrating the turning of the season by opening nominations for our next People and Planet Awards cycle.

This time around, we’ll be honoring green businesses that help you green your home; between now and January 10, we’re collecting nominations.

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 helps their customers make their homes into greener places to live.

Tell us why your favorite small, green business should win –

You could nominate a green building and supply company, or home green-energy installer. You could nominate a maker of non-toxic products for the home, such as cleaners, home appliances, or personal care products. Or you could nominate businesses dedicated to fair supply chains for home furnishings, decor, linens, or items for bed or bath. Use your imagination in proposing a nominee! And 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 during February for three winners who will each receive a prize of $5,000. Details and nomination form online.
