AWARD - The West Midlands C+ Carbon Positive Awards

WHEN: Deadline 31 March 2009
WHAT: The West Midlands C+ Carbon Positive Awards
WHAT... MORE?: From the blurb: The Awards are open to any business, organisation, partnership or community group located in or operating in the West Midlands region, who are taking positive carbon action.

We’re looking for inspiring examples of low carbon initiatives which will encourage others to take action as we move towards a low carbon economy. We want to hear from businesses, organisations and schools who are:-

Successfully cutting carbon emissions and managing their carbon footprint

Developing new products or services which offer consumer low carbon solutions

Developing innovative products, services or prototypes which significantly reduce carbon emissions

An exemplary micro business undertaking low carbon work

Engaging with communities to cut carbon emissions and reduce their carbon footprint.

COMMENTS: Lots to gain; little to lose. Hate to share and get more competition but, well, karma will be our guide:) With luck, see you at the finals.


Sadly, we did not prevail this time. To see who did, check here.

Not a nice feeling

I'm pretty certain that this blog and could not exist without a ton of IT this end and at reader end whirring away.

But then what might I being doing. Without the internet I doubt it would not involve a lot of carbon-based travel.
