Feature page regarding the Environmental Hall of Fame, which launched its first awards ceremony on June 7, 2008. The series is the brainchild of Allen Ruben and Catherine Corbin.

"The Environmental Hall of Fame is devoted to curtailing climate change and restoring the Earth’s ecosystem by promoting green and eco-conscious living. Its awards program, related exhibits, and environmental solutions center will be designed to sharpen the focus on solutions to the environmental problems and promote the recommendations of those who make a lasting contribution to conservation, preservation and green practices." from Environmental Hall of Fame site.
  • Environmental Hall of Fame, Chicago '08 -- Awesome - Of the 36 honorees, twelve were from Chicago, twelve from Illinois, and twelve from other locations in the United States. Those being recognized seemed to appreciate receiving this very hearty pat on the back for their tireless efforts. (PESN; Nov. 26, 2008)

Comments

"The Environmental Hall of Fame, conceived by Allen Rubin and Catherine Corbin, arose from their research for an unpublished book, “Heroes of the Planet Earth". The proposed book recognizes individuals, companies and organizations that have made the most significant impact on environmental issues. Re-titled “The Environmental Hall of Fame, 2008 Edition", the book is slated for release in late summer 2008. Those researched for the book were nominated to the inaugural Environmental Hall of Fame." from the Environmental Hall of Fame website.
