Awarded to the top websites, blogs, individuals, and organisations that spread information on environmental topics and offer actionable steps for reversing the impending collapse of the natural world.
At this particular juncture, we as a species have to realise that the industrial revolution was an important part of humanity’s progress, but that it also imposed a negative imprint on the environment. Luckily, many individuals are aware of this and devote time to raising awareness about the environmental issues we face today.
As a natural part of our evolution and instincts, finding a sustainable solution is a natural effect of wanting to survive and thrive. We at GreenMatch want to applaud everybody who chooses to follow this important path. As a token of our appreciation, we compiled a list of our favourite websites that help overcome the surrounding environmental issues. Each website is classified according to its key content.
The categories were chosen to give an overview on the issue of sustainability—starting with websites that show the reasons why change is important, continuing to sites that tell us what rules we need to follow, then moving on to what we can do together or as individuals, and finishing up with sharing how green technology can help us fulfil our green vision.
Congratulations to all of those listed under our 5 categories:
- Why we must act: Climate Change
- What we must do: Environmental Policies
- What we can do together: Recycling
- What we can do ourselves: Do-It-Yourself Projects
- How tech can help: Green Technology

By now it is very clear to everyone that the impact humans have on the environment is reaching a point where serious actions have to be taken. That is why there has been such a boom in the number of websites that want to inform the public, businesses and governmental institutions about the alarming threat of climate change, which is already happening as a result of our behaviour. Some websites focus on mapping certain areas and sharing data that helps further prove climate change to be real, whereas others share information by collecting data and writing articles. Information is the key for us to understand potential scenarios for the human kind and act on them accordingly.
Here is our top list of blogs, news sites, and media that focus on climate change and the causes and the effects of it.
Why we must act: Climate Change
Environmental regulations are set by governmental bodies that must be aware of the negative imprint our society creates on daily basis. To trust governments' hard-headed judgement of what is important to legalise, it is beneficial to see what regulations must be followed by ordinary citizens and businesses, as the laws hopefully comply with what is best, not only for us but also for the natural environment and species living there.
To find out more, look at our top list of blogs, news sites, and media that focus on laws, regulations, policies, or procedures within the field of environmental protection, green energy, sustainability, and the like.
What we must do: Environmental Policies
Regardless of what governments decide to do for protecting the planet, there are certain things that nobody can do for us but ourselves. Even if we do not run a business, we still produce a vast amount of waste that can lead to negative consequences in the long run. Each country has a different way of handling waste but it is our responsibility as citizens to follow the advice when handling our household waste. That is why we created a list of top recycling websites that either function as platforms for companies offering recycling services, or as sources of information on how to recycle, what items to recycle, and how to reduce or even eliminate waste completely.
What we can do together: Recycling
DIY Green Projects
Do you want to go even further than that? There are many websites that present how sustainability is all about the little things. A mindful action incorporated in our everyday activities can create a sense of satisfaction, as we are getting out there and are doing something beyond our comfort zone. Before big institutions succeed with incorporating sustainability in the society's daily activities, it is also up to us to do our part. Even if it might not be the most convenient—since we are creatures of convenience—there are many websites that give tips on how to adopt these conscious ways of living in an easier way.
What we can do ourselves: DIY Green Projects
We've been witnessing an extremely fast speed which runs the development of technology, playing a crucial role in everyone's lives. In recent years, green technology development enjoyed further importance with the view of solving major climate change and pollution issues. Despite the complaints about technology permeating our lives too much, we cannot oversee the huge benefit it brings in terms of efficiency and productivity. If we leverage our knowledge in a constructive way and invest money in developing relevant gadgets that can upgrade this efficiency and eco-friendliness, then there will be no doubt about how green technology can be helpful. In fact, it is and will be the major player in helping us reach the vision of a fully sustainable civilisation.
See our list of top websites that focus on technology being developed within the renewable energy sector.
How tech can help: Green Technology
