Nature’s Logic and GreaterGood.org Launch Nature’s Voice Awards
We are proud to share that the inaugural GreaterGood.org Nature’s Voice Awards, which aims to amplify the voice and impact of sustainability advocates across the globe, has opened nominations and announced its first round of winners.
GreaterGood.org, a charitable organization devoted to improving the health and well-being of people, pets, and the planet, and Nature’s Logic, a 100% natural pet food with no synthetic vitamins, created the new awards program to recognize organizations and individuals that excel at inspiring action and can serve as best practice examples for other environmental voices to increase their own impact.
“We understand that strong voices for the environment are critical, now more than ever,” explained Liz Baker, CEO of GreaterGood.org. “This campaign celebrates organizations of all sizes across the world who innovate, inspire others, and amplify nature’s voice to help the earth.”
