Are you an individual, group member, business, food producer or schools that feels passionate about protecting the environment? If so, why not enter the 2019 Norwich and Norfolk Eco Awards?
We're looking for projects and schemes that have a fantastic approach to looking after the environment. Whether it's growing your own veg for school dinners, inspiring others to look after the planet, or installing solar panels, if you can prove your environmental excellence we want to hear from you.
Previous winners include potato growing, textile recycling and converting food waste destined for the bin into nutritious meals. There are just some of the winning projects at last year's awards, which are run by Norwich City Council and Norfolk County Council.

The awards scheme is free to enter with an easy online application process. Winners receive a trophy and certificate as well as eco awards branding to use for their own marketing purposes. This year we are delighted to offer more prizes and promotion thanks to generous support from this year's sponsors Eastern Daily Press, Pixie Energy, Updata, Vattenfall, and Veolia.
To add even more excitement, the esteemed eco hero title will be chosen by the public via an online vote. So nominate your eco hero now!
We are open for entries until Tuesday 4 December 2018. The official awards ceremony will be held on Thursday 28 March 2019, at The Halls, Norwich.
