The Eco Site Award is totally free. Applications are evaluated by a panel of reviewers.
Upon applying for the website award you will generally receive an official notice within 4 weeks.
The Eco Site Award is provided to a website
whether personal or commercial based upon the following criteria:
A website award is given to a site based upon its commitment towards one or all of the
Devoted to Health:
Websites that are designed and maintained towards providing valuable information
regarding health, whether it is our health, the health of our pets, our planet or
otherwise. Providing a website award in this category to a site does not necessarily mean
we endorse the site, simply that we believe the site is dedicated towards promoting
Eco Site Awards always reserves the right to determine what does or does not apply
to the standards of inclusion for this category.
Promotion of Safety:
A site that exists to promote safety would fall in this category and be subject
to approval for our Eco Site Award. Safety can take many forms from safety in our
home, on our job or in our general every day experiences. A website that is focused
on providing us information about safety in any form or category would likely qualify
for the Eco Site Award. Presentation of the Eco Site Award does not necessarily
mean we endorse the site, simply that we believe it deserves recognition for the
information it provides. Eco Site Awards always reserves the right to determine
what does or does not apply to the standards of inclusion for this category.
Focused on Ecology:
Ecology can take many forms. A site can be providing information on how
to "Green" your home or business, how to conserve energy, lower your carbon footprint,
save a tree, clean the air, remediate pollution or chemical imbalances and much
more. Our standard of definition on ecology or eco is that a site is concerned with
living things in relation to the environment, however, this is not all inclusive.
These are just the guidelines we work within. A website that is "eco-centered",
or focused on ecology would likely deserve recognition from Eco Site Awards in this
category. Presenting a website award to a site based upon its focus on Ecology does not
necessarily mean we endorse the site simply that we believe the site is worthy
of recognition. Eco Site Awards always reserves the right to determine what does
or does not apply to the standards of inclusion for this category.
In addition to the above, before deciding whether a site qualifies for an Eco Site
Award we also look at technical factors including but not limited to site navigation,
overall design, whether or not a site is updated frequently and style of design.
Our reviewers are web professionals and do not hold bias against a site in this
regard but simply examine the site for overall professionalism and score the site
Sites that automatically do not qualify for an Eco Site Award:
Sites that are hosted by free hosting services do not qualify for an Eco Site Award.
If you believe that your content is original enough and provides the type of information
or services that would be valuable to a visitor and good enough to win the Eco Site
Award we suggest you obtain your own domain name and migrate your site to a paid
hosting service. The cost of a domain name is very minimal and there are many good
quality low cost hosting services available.
Sites that do not provide information related to the theme of the Eco Site Award
of Health, Safety and Ecology, automatically do not qualify.
Sites that are considered offensive by normal community standards or promote hate,
violence or pornography do not qualify for an Eco Site Award.
Only submit your site once. If a site is resubmitted more than once it will go to
the bottom of the list. The Eco Site Awards review committee always has the final
determination as to whether a site will be given a website award an applying for a website award
does not guarantee inclusion.
Award Notification Linking Information:
Once you have been notified of receipt of the Eco Site Award you may place the provided
Eco Site Award on your site. In addition, we will
list your site on our Awards page. An Eco Site Award lets
your visitors know that your site has been found worthy of recognition. If a site that has received
the Eco Site Award in our opinion no longer qualifies for the award for any reason
whatsoever within our discretion, upon receiving due notice from us via email or
regular mail the graphic must be removed from the respective website. The award
