Nature’s Magic of Athens was one of two small businesses that recently received a $5,000 People & Planet Award from Green America, in recognition of the business “being committed to bettering the environment and society.”

According to a press release, Nature’s Magic offers plant-based, non-toxic cleaning products as a holistic alternative to conventional household cleaners. According to founder and owner Danielle Young, “As a very small, woman-owned business that began with a simple yet passionate idea, I encourage others who are inspired to take the leap.”

The other recent recipient of the semiannual award was Eutree in Villa Rica, Ga. — a business described as a boutique lumber supplier that salvages hardwood specimens that would otherwise become waste.
