Best Green Websites 2008: Nigel launches Green Web Awards Thursday 7 August 2008 PDF Print BEST GREEN WEBSITES 2008 NIGEL LAUNCHES GREEN WEB AWARDS http://www.nigelsecostore.com/green-web-awards/ Nigel's Eco Store (http://www.nigelsecostore.com/) is proud to today announce the winners of the Nigel’s Green Web Awards 2008. Given the rapid rise in the number of green websites and the amount of coverage of green issues and climate change this year, we felt it was time to draw attention to the best websites involved in the effort to create a greener future. The Judges Over the past few weeks we have collected the opinions from leading Green bloggers and experts - people like Bonnie Alter from treehugger.com, Adam Vaughan from Smart Planet, Ed Gillespie from Futerra and Tracy Stokes of EcoStreet - all people with great green credentials who also know what makes the web tick. A full list of judges on the awards page can be found at: http://www.nigelsecostore.com/green-web-awards/#judges The judges voted on their favourite Green and Eco sites, in a number of different categories. Our mission in creating the Green Web Awards was to find the people and organisations who are in the vanguard of creating a greener future online and not just to reward the sites with the biggest budgets, but to find websites that are hidden gems, community-based sites and ones that make use of the power of the internet. “The web is now a central part of our lives. We expect the sites we visit to be authoritative, dynamic and talking to us in ways that we understand. I hope we’ve been able to shine a light on some of the very best green web sites there are. I was pleased to see some of my favourites come up,” said Nigel Berman, MD of Nigel's Eco Store. More than any medium today, the web has the power to create communities that can change the world, to inform, and to shape opinion. We believe that what we can achieve online today will have a massive influence on what the world becomes tomorrow. And the Winners are...
