It is important that we recognize those who have most affected the environment by their words and actions. Each year, this site takes a poll to find those most deserving to be in the Environmental Hall of Fame and the Environmental Hall of Shame. Please send your nominations for each category by e-mail through the “Contact the Author” link or put it in the comment section . If you would, please include a short reason that your nominee should be chosen and suggest a suitable gift if they win.
Nominations will be taken until January 31st, 2017. The nominees will then be listed and this site will conduct a poll to determine the winner in each category. You may suggest a suitable prize for your nominee. Please be imaginative, as particularly thoughtful or humorous nominations will be recognized and published on this site
