Cadbury and Friends of the Earth are among the organisations that were honoured at the Green Awards last night for their environmental design and marketing credentials.
Design consultancies failed to pick up any credits in the packaging design category. The two prizes went to cosmetics company Lush for its Squeaky Green solid shampoo and conditioner, which uses no packaging at all, and to Cadbury, for its foil-wrapped Eco-Eggs.
The award for best Green website costing less than £50 000 to develop went to Friends of the Earth for its Big Ask climate campaign microsite, designed by CHI & Partners.
Broadband environmental TV channel Green.tv won the award for best Green website worth more than £50 000, designed by Large Blue.
‘The awards were founded specifically to drive change clientside, and encourage the creation of Green briefs for consultancies and agencies,’ says Green Awards managing director Iain Patton.
Now in their third year, the Green Awards were today accredited by the Royal Society of Arts.
