Nominations opened this week for the 2012
Green Toronto Awards
, though the most interesting category from the 2011 edition has been dropped.
Last year, the awards expanded to include a green homes category, aimed at individuals who had done something remarkable to or with their own homes.
"It wasn't our strongest category," says Jessica Chow, co-ordinator for the city-sponsored awards. "We don’t know why. We noticed a lot of them were, 'Oh, I recycle in my home.' It wasn't really what we were after."
So this year, it's been folded into the more general green design category, where individual homes will now compete with eco clothing, green roofs and other design innovations.
Nominations can be submitted here
until midnight on Feb. 6. Winners will be announced in March.
