Treehugger Names Streetsblog “Best Green Transportation Advocacy”

Wow! We are honored. Treehugger blogs dozens of green-goings-on throughout the U.S. and the world
everyday (so many some say it is hard to read them all!) We get
regularly featured with some of our posts and films and we are very thankful. But
even more exciting is the fact that Streetfilms, Streetsblog and the
Livable Streets Initiative were chosen Best Green Transportation Advocacy
in their First Annual "Best of Green" selections this week. Lots of
great awards in there besides us, and thanks to Treehugger as our
numbers are huge this week.

Please take a second to VOTE FOR US by following this link.

  • Congrats! This is a great blog doing a great job. I look forward to the change you are going to be able to bring!

  • Hey folks, keep voting! Right now LSI is winning its category, which is exciting. On another note, in the “People and Politics” section I just saw that Mayor Newsom is ahead of his counterparts in his category, which could set up an interesting vote for “Best in Show” later in the month!

  • You guys are indeed the best. Keep up the _fantastic_ work you all have been doing.
