Now in their fifth year, The Observer Ethical Awards reward those that have an innovative way at looking at and tackling ethical issues be that in a business sense or a community project. Sponsored by Ecover, ff you have an ethical initiative, project or product you can enter.
In previous years the awards have attracted a diverse selection of winners from politicians such as Ken Livingstone and Caroline Lucas to community projects such as Lomeshaye Marsh Local Nature Reserve Stockbridge Junior Rangers, winners of the Ethical Kids award and bursary.
You can also nominate entries that you think deserve it, in the following categories: campaigner of the year, politician of the year, online retailer and local retailer. Those that nominate will be entered into a draw to win a Warren Evans bed, a rail break to Provence courtesy of Explore, cosmetic gift sets and an organic food hamper. To enter, vote or for further information visit Observer Ethical Awards (on the Guardian website).
