Not to be outdone, the good folks over at Treehugger decided to choose Etsy as a winner in their first annual Best of Green Awards. The winners were chosen by the Treehugger staff, and we were deemed the Best Handmade-Goods website, in the Fashion and Beauty category. We graciously accept. There is also a Readers’ Choice Award for each category. So please go vote for Etsy, twice!
