The Yves Rocher Foundation launched the first “Terre de Femmes: women of the earth” awards in the U.S., Spain and The Netherlands, which recognize women who make the world a greener place through their actions and programs, especially in the areas of education, conservation and motivation. Since 2001, the Foundation has honored more than 20 women in France, Germany and Belgium. In 2005, three American women will receive $10,000 awards to support their programs. The first place winner will also be eligible to compete against winners from other countries for an additional $11,000 at the Terre De Femme International ceremony, Paris, France, on March 8, 2005. The application deadline will be Nov. 30. More info: www.yvesroch erusa.com/terre.
