Every day, TreeHugger scours the planet looking for the people, ideas, projects, and memes that are pushing green into the mainstream. There are no shortage of great examples, for sure, but, once a year, we like to round up the best of the best, to present our Best of Green Awards.

In 2011, we're presenting our third annual awards, and this year promises to be the biggest and best yet. The full complement of awards will be presented the week of April 4 - 8, but we kicked things off this year with the Best of Green Readers' Choice Awards; scroll down to see this year's nominees.

It's a great time for green, and we're excited to share the best of it with you. Welcome to the 2011 Best of Green!


For the second year in a row, we wanted to include you, our dear readers. Our Readers' Choice Awards have wrapped up! See who your fellow readers voted for their favorite electric car, green smartphone app, and more -- over 50 awards in all eight of our main categories.
