It’s increasingly clear that making sustainable choices is critical for the planet and for you. Many brands get it — and they’re producing, packaging and shipping their products in much smarter ways. A few are even sharing proprietary research on renewable practices in the hope of changing their whole industries.

For our third annual Sustainable Innovation Awards, GH’s scientists and industry experts evaluated nearly 200 contenders to choose winning home, beauty, apparel, toy and food brands whose efforts we applaud. Our experts are also hard at work on our annual sustainability summit, Raise the Green Bar, held by the Good Housekeeping Institute and Made Safe, a nonprofit that celebrates nontoxic ingredients. This summit aims to educate and inspire audiences to make more sustainable choices when shopping, eating, cleaning, traveling and more. Registration for the event is free and open to all.
