Receiving a Green Trophy in March?

It looks like Celerystreet.com is getting noticed again…or at least half of the founders have been noticed. That would be me, “e”.

I am a finalist in the Indiana Green Business Awards in the category of “Enterprising Woman of the Year”. This would be someone who juggles a home, family, community involvement, and has started a successful green, sustainable, and eco-friendly business.

I get to meet Sara Snow, the author and TV host of Discovery Network’s "Get Fresh with Sara Snow”! And if I win or am the runner-up, will I get a recycled trophy? Picture a previously championed baseball league trophy with someone else’s name on it…like Jimmy Jones, 1985 Centerfield Regional Championship. That trophy will have a beautiful sash of recycled fabric that says "IGBA, Enterprising Woman of the Year, 2010." I think that would be pretty green and comical too! Actually, I have no idea what the winner receives - the title alone is plenty and I just know it is going to be a great evening.

I am really looking forward to meeting all these amazing finalists and hearing about their “green projects” in categories like sustainable transport, natural habitats and wildlife, sustainable water…14 all together. It will be a very enlightening awards ceremony gala dinner on March 24th.

Oh, and if you haven’t noticed we have been featured on quite a few blogs lately. I discovered a new website/blog, http://www.alternativeconsumer.com/2010/02/27/eco-deal-of-the-day-celery-street/, that has loads of green info...I really like all the green fashion videos! Visit the site and read the Celery Street review they featured some of our great eco friendly products.

The Green Police!

Super Bowl Commercials this year were inspired, funny, and some a little annoying but my favorite of all were those Green Police! Audi A3 TDI Clean diesel with the help of Cheap Trick did a hilarious job of reminding us that it is all about eco choices and lending a hand to Mother Nature. And buying an Audi A3 TDI clean diesel. Betty White with a Snickers bar in hand, driving off in an Audi A3 TDI after her football with the boys would have been really inspired. She washes off the Snickers wrapper and puts it into the recycle bin. Is that even possible??

Cheap Trick actually went back to the studio to rescore the famous “Dream Police” song.

Another Green Police PSA came out, thanks to this Green Police song by Cheap Trick. These Green Police are about protecting and conserving the earth, one napkin at a time. More than one billion pounds of napkins could be kept out of our landfills if we use the correct amount of napkins for our food. Follow this simple formula. 1 = 1. 1 piece of pizza = 1 napkin. 1 hamburger = 1 napkin. See for yourself!

You heard him. These Green Police will be hitting the streets after February 7th. They are out there…Napkin Abuse. It’s no Joke.
