There is just one week left for green-thinking schools, groups and businesses to get their entries in for the Norwich Eco Awards.
Now in their second year, the Eco Awards celebrate all the good work which is happening in the city to help the environment.
The awards are held by Norwich City Council in partnership with the Evening News. The closing date for entries is Friday, January 29.
Brian Morrey, executive member for sustainable city development at City Hall, said: 'It is really important for everyone, especially people at a grass roots level to get involved with eco issues. Not only will actions help to improve the area they live in, but also for future generations living there.
'I'm looking forward to seeing all of the entries - I think the judging is going to be pretty tough. I know there are plenty of people doing things out there; we just need them to shout about it.'
All entrants will be invited to the awards ceremony, presented by the Sheriff of Norwich, Tim O'Riordan, in February 2010.
