    Great idea, although I’m disappointed that startup non-profits cannot be part of this contest. When it comes to sustainability, the lines between for-profit and non-profit are quite blurry anyway. Business is business, regardless of how you pay taxes, and the fundamental goal of ‘sustainable business’ is to create benefits for the public at large (e.g. clean air and water, social justice, local economic development, etc…)

    Hi Kevin, Thanks for the input ..it is a blurry line sometimes. We’ll touch base with the team on your thoughts.

    One week to go before the Opportunity Green Conference — have the 25 startups been contacted or announced yet? Haven’t seen any posts or tweets — when will they be announced?

    comScore recently announced a milestone: 3 millionth tree was planted as part of its “Trees for Knowledge” panelist recruitment program. (link to http://blog.comscore.com/2012/04/comscore_plants_3_millionth_tree_as_part_of_trees.html)comScore introduced this program in 2008 in partnership with the non-profit organization Trees for the Future. For every qualified participant (link to http://www.relevantknowledge.com/AboutTrees.aspx) in research panels such as RelevantKnowledge, the organization plants a tree in a developing community in Central America, Africa, or Asia. This is a good example where a simple action of an individual online can translate into meaningful results all over the world.
