Green AND feminist

You'll often find posts about environmental issues, and even more frequently about feminism, here; nice to be able to combine the two:

Juliet Davenport's Good Energy churns out wind, solar and small-scale hydroelectric energy. Lizzie Vann's Organix Brands produces organic baby meals. Su Hardy's Mooncup provides reusable sanitary protection to protect forests from being cut for paper pulp. Safia Minney's People Tree sells glamorous women's fashion--from office suits to party dresses--that aren't made by exploited garment workers.
One of them will win the first Women in Ethical Business award, a new annual prize for a female CEO to be announced in London on March 16.
