2007 People's Choice Award for the Green Business of the Year - introduction

You've probably heard the exciting news about Co-Op's 2007 People's Choice Award for the Green Business of the Year - last week Co-Op America announced the names of the of ten nominees for this prestigious award.

As this is the people's award, your votes are going to decide which business will win the award. The vote is open for everyone and can be made on Co-Op America's website until October 15. The announcement of the winner will be made on November 10 at the Green Festival in San Francisco.

All of the nominees are really great and choosing your favorite one is not an easy task at all. Anyway, how much do you know about these businesses, their green practices and the way they try to make a difference? That's where Eco-Libris blog comes to your help! I will start tomorrow my People's Award Nominees series, where I will try to provide you with relevant information on each one of the nominees.

In order to do that, I sent all the nominees a short questionnaire that they were asked to reply. I hope their replies will make it easier for you to compare between the nominees and decide which one is your no. 1.

Here are the nominees:

1. Flexcar
2. The Planet's Homestore
3. Green Living Now
4. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods and Oils
5. Mountains of the Moon
6. Only Natural Pet Store
7. Pizza Fusion
10. Yoga Nine/Buddha Body Fair Trade Store

As you can see, Eco-Libris is not included in the list (well, we're only 3 months old), but maybe next year..

So stay with me for the exciting nominees series starting TOMORROW!
