Our tenants and customers are being urged to go green in their nominations for this year's star awards.

The Best Green Initiative Star is one of six award categories and replaces the Better Environment Star, which was won by The Islington Estate Tenants and Residents Association (TIETARA).

The association was praised for reporting fly-tipping, arranging for graffiti to be removed and organising everything from Halloween parties to a weekly after school club and internet café.
