The Norwich and Norfolk Eco Awards celebrates projects and schemes that demonstrate a commitment to an environmentally-friendly ethos, while giving individuals and groups a platform to showcase their achievements.

In previous years, the Eco Awards have seen shiitake mushroom growing, car sharing and food recycling as winning projects.

Councillor Martin Wilby, chairman of the Environment, Development and Transport committee at Norfolk County Council said: “Whether you’re a community group, business or school, I’d encourage you to take a few minutes to apply for this year’s awards for a chance to get the recognition you deserve for our eco-credentials.”

Categories include: Eco schools, community groups, eco food producers and businesses, an online ‘people’s vote’ for the coveted ‘Eco hero’ category along with more.
