Even though most green sites actually have the color “green” in them to immediately set them apart, its astonishing how each of them has so much individuality. I’ve picked 30 websites that are great in both deeds and looks. Do check them out and let me know what you think.
# 30: Big Omaha
Big Omaha is a 3 day conference organized every year in Omaha that brings together creatives, innovators and entrepreneurs to discuss issues and ideas. I think such localized events and websites are definitely the way to go. It’s a beautiful site with the big buffalo and the bold fonts.
# 29: Ecoki
# 28: Graze
This one is a little non-conventional. Graze is a food delivering website that caters to working people. It prepares homemade meals and posts them to clients all you have to do is select one of their customized food boxes. Graze is proud to use the best quality produce by small business owners and organic food producers. They’re website is scrumptious!

Wathen Castanos Inc. has been in the home building business for three generations. Considering the rising energy costs and its effect on the world, they’ve started building green homes. If they can change lives, one home at a time — they definitely deserve the accolades.

# 24: Ecorazzi
Ecorazzi is the paparazzi of the green community. It covers all the news (read gossip) on celebrities and well known personalities supporting the green cause. Designed for people who need the additional kick in the right direction — if Brad Pitt can drive an Audi so can we? Yes, quite.
# 23: Drop Bags
Drop Bags manufactures multipurpose extraction kits. Their website is uncluttered and great to look at. The subtle shades of brown and green in the back reinforces their core message.
# 22: Green and Clean Mom
Green and Clean Mom is a green entrepreneur’s journey to living a green life as she juggles the various hats (mother, business woman, educator, social media fanatic etc) she wears in her everyday life. It’s a great read for inspiration, and has a really feminine flavor to the design.

Simple, to the point and clean. Green Options is a network of environmentally focused blogs. I have added this to the list because sometimes simple lines and colors can represent so much more value.

Carbon Calculator is a tool that lets you calculate your carbon footprints and tells you ways to reduce it. The soothing shades of blue take you to another world.
# 15: A Self Sufficient Life
A self Sufficient Life is actually a personal blog, but I had to add it here. Self sufficient and frugal lifestyles start with a mindset change – a shift from the attractions and clutter of the world, to a more simplistic stance. The design says it all.

The Daily Green is on number four for a reason. They know how to present loads of information on one page, without ever cluttering it up for you.
# 3: Jane Goodall
Jane Goodall is running a conservation for chimpanzees and other casualties of deforestation. Her website represents passion, intensity and good will. It’s a great institute to donate to, or get involved with. Who can ignore those sad chimpanzee eyes?
