The celebration of a quantitative and qualitative ECO-Effect. Recipients must quantitatively positively affect both the ECOlogy and ECOnomy of their environment and “ECHO” their actions to other groups.
These awards will be given for quantitative and qualitative demonstration of the “ECO-Effect”. This is defined by showing a quantitative positive effect on the environment (could be a reduction of carbon footprint, less use of fossil fuels, reduction of garbage, etc.) plus a quantitative positive effect on the economy through a current or eventual economic savings.
Qualitatively, the recipient would demonstrate an “ECHO” by their actions, i.e; sharing their ECO-Action with others, i.e; home, school, community, etc.
What The ECO-Effect Awards Are Not!
We do not set standards; therefore ECO-Effect Awards will not be awarded based upon any milestones.
Procedure to Qualify:
Any entity can apply for an award, but must demonstrate their positive effects.
The ECO-Effect Advisory Board will analyze results and determine the recipients “ECHO” effect.
The following criteria will be judged:
1/3 – ECOlogical Impact
1/3 – ECOnomic Impact
1/3 – ECHO
