A while ago we published a list with 50 Green Web Designs to Inspire You, and the post was a hit. This time we decided to focus on green websites, but green by meaning nature related websites – eco-friendly stuff, organic food, reusable energy, etc. So today you will get inspired not only by web design but also by eco-friendly ideas, which is simply great! I hope you enjoy.

    I hope you do not see this as unwarranted advertising.

    Hi Gisele,

    Greetings from Bulgaria!

    Very nice summary of creative and inspiring web designs! Just lovely! :)

    I saw you were wondering about hrasti.com – this is an Bulgarian web site about decorative bushes and I was absolutely surprised to find it here in your green collection of good web designs! Happy to see something from Bulgaria here and what’s more I didn’t know about it before your post! :)

    Best wishes,
    Petya

    Hi, I’ve just started a new homepage design for a Tree Surgeon company in the Uk and this is exactly the type of thing I needed to help inspire me. There’s a lot of really great examples of nature websites here, keep up the good work and keep the great posts coming. Thanks Gisele.

    Hey, nice post but there is an inaccuracy regarding “The Organic Supermarket”. it is not the 1st organic supermarket in Ireland and even the title “Organic Supermarket” is debatable, I am reliably told! They do have a nice website though….
