The Social Venture Network, a nonprofit that promotes socially and environmentally responsible businesses, has named the winners of the 2008 SVN innovation awards. The idea behind the awards is to promote and support undiscovered socially responsible business and nonprofit leaders. Among the six winning organizations are a sustainable seafood production company, an ecologically responsible design firm, and a microfinance program for poor people.

I think support and recognition for companies that set a high moral and ethical tone increases the chances that those higher standards will become the norm. My son and I operate a number of e-commerce websites selling products online. One product, a gravity water filter by 911water is my favorite by virtue of the fact that it helps reduce the use of one of the most ridiculous products ever devised - bottled water. It is also one of the most successfully marketed products, an incredible feat that tells as much about those buying bottled water as those selling it. I'm proud to be involved in some small way with a company and product that can help bring about significant change, both socially and environmentally. Congratulations to SVN and the companies and NGS's chosen.
