of applying for the ecoexcellence award
It can be difficult for organizations to learn how to put sustainable, cost saving, best practices in to place, and then find a way to communicate those efforts to attract the fast growing LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) market segment and the increasing number of other consumers concerned about their own health, the planet’s health, and your organization’s measure of environmental & corporate social responsibility.
By applying for the EcoExcellence Award, you will learn about best practices, and be able to market your efforts to your target audience through your On-Site Review certification, your Reviewed & Recommended directory listing, and your online article. The EcoExcellence Award is the only program globally to offer all of this at a very affordable price, with payment options through the PayPal “Bill Me Later” plan.
