A Green Dot?

I recently stumbled onto the website for these awards, although I could find very little background info, such as is it only for American products/services etc, the concept is very good.  I think SA deserves something like this!

Green Dot Awards (GDA) Background

GDA was founded by Farmani Group in 2006. Among others, Farmani group has founded many charities, businesses, and organizations including the award-winning VUE magazine, The Lucie Awards (the Oscars of photography), Focus on AIDS, International Photography Awards, Le Prix de la Photographie Paris, Farmani Gallery, aNet Communications, Design Awards and FYIdesign.

Recognizing that human activity is causing dramatic environmental change, we must ensure that we act today to protect tomorrow’s environment. Businesses and organizations have become especially aware of the impact that their practices have on the well-being of the planet and many are acting to adopt more sustainable attitudes.

The purpose of Green Dot is to reward those who practice excellence in environmental responsibility. Although the Green Dot Awards are worthy onto themselves, they are also a consumer guide to excellence in environmentally-sustainable practices.

A business with a Green Dot Award is a business that can be trusted by consumers with stewardship of the environment. Recognition from the Green Dot Awards allows businesses to promote their products and services as items that are manufactured and delivered in an environmentally friendly manner.
