Green Products Awards 2021

Green Products Awards 2021

At Viable AlternativEnergy  “green” (sustainable/ recyclable/ alternative) projects, products and ideas “give us life”. People who create and design new products with these concepts in mind inspire us.

The annual Green Product Awards look at products designed to support the change towards a green way of living. They choose products for their aspects of design, innovation & sustainability. 
 
In 2018/19 we (Viable AlternativEnergy) created our first video of 12 Inspiring Green Products 2019. That year over 400 submissions were put through for the Green Products Awards. More than 100 nominees were presented to the international jury. 25 awards were handed out in 12 categories. Professionals (established businesses) and newcomers (startups) were awarded separately per category.

This year due to popular demand, the Green Products Awards extended their public voting period by 2 weeks until 14th February 2021. The 11 categories are: – Architecture and Tiny Homes, Consumer Goods, Interior and Lifestyle, Sport, Building Components, Fashion, Kids, Workspace, Circular Materials, Handicraft and Mobility.
