Ideal Bite announces Green Awards

Ideal Bite, a leading source of ideas on light green living, announced its call for nominees for the first-ever Ideal Bite’s Best in Green (B.I.G.) Awards –an awards program that will annually recognize those companies, products and services that are true leaders and innovators in the green space. Winners of the 2008 B.I.G. Awards will be announced at Ideal Bite’s B.I.G. Awards Party in November 2008 in New York City.

With more and more products “going green”, consumers are left to wonder if what they are using is really as environmentally friendly and healthy as it claims to be. Ideal Bite’s 275,000 subscribers (aka “Biters”) have come to rely on Ideal Bite for its objective, expert advice on practical and fun ways to align their eco-friendly values with their everyday decisions, from buying paraben-free cosmetics to selecting the best organic wine.

“We started Ideal Bite with the mission to seek out good companies and connect them with conscientious consumers who want to do the right thing for both their personal health and the environment, as well as those who know the power of voting with their dollar,” stated Jen Boulden, co-founder of Ideal Bite. “We hope our Best in Green Awards will draw attention to some great, green pioneers and help consumers identify those companies and individuals that have become Ideal Bite editor favorites because of their sustainable operations and truly great green practices.”

Ideal Bite’s B.I.G. Awards will consist of seven categories including: Home, Health & Beauty, Style, Food, Fun, Everyday/Living and Next in Green. Nominees will be selected from the thousands of products, companies and services that make up Ideal Bite’s database of expert tips. Companies that have not yet been tipped on Ideal Bite but would like to be eligible for a 2008 Best in Green Award can submit themselves for consideration at www.idealbite.com/bigawards.
