What is Blue Beauty?
We believe that every business and individual needs to take actions that put the planet first. The main goal for these awards is not only celebrating the business and initiatives that are already making an effort to leave the planet better but also helping consumers find and support those brands and inspiring an industry to do better. We think that when companies see brands making positive decisions for the environment and being recognized for that, it pushes the industry forward and encourages others to act.
