"I believe that while we all may not desire to be vegan or live off the grid, most of us are willing to at least do our own small part in taking better care of our planet" says blog founder Elena White. Environmental conservation has always been important to Elena and her family. In her youth she spent quality time on her family farm in rural Alabama. "My grandfather, a retired farmer, took the time to teach me and my younger siblings how to manage and care for our land. We learned how to fully utilize everything and waste as little as possible." These lessons have guided her throughout her career. She has been blogging about green living since 2009 and is also employed as a Corporate Sustainability Coordinator.

The award is sponsored by Greenmatch, a Denmark based green energy sourcing provider. They selected the winners based on their successful efforts to build a greener planet. Other winners include such notable names as the World Wildlife Federation, National Geographic and Treehugger.
