PEOPLE are urged to nominate their eco-hero of the decade for an award celebrating ten years of an environmental award.

Whether they are a local person doing their best to promote environmentally friendly living, or a national icon such as David Attenborough, the People Environment Achievement Awards wants to them to be recognised.

The awards were set-up in 2010 as a way to say thank you to people who are promoting eco-friendly living.

There are 13 categories in the awards that celebrate different elements of green and sustainable living.

These include: vegan, greenest family, product, nature, energy, and health & wellbeing.

The closing date for the nominations is October 23 and the winners will be announced in an online ceremony on November 20.
