Fremont’s own Theo Chocolate is not just a place to indulge your sweet tooth, it’s also dedicated to organic Fair Trade practices from “bean-to-bar,” having recently earned the first Fair for Life certification in the United States.

It’s one of 10 most popular nominations for Green Business of the Year from Green America, a Washington, DC-based not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1982 that was known as Co-op America until January 2009.

Vote before October 6.

Green America states its mission: “to harness economic power—the strength of consumers, investors, businesses, and the marketplace—to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society.” It defines green businesses as “companies that work to help – not hurt – people, communities, and the planet. Only businesses that have passed Green America’s screening process are eligible.”

Winners will be announced in November, at San Francisco’s Green Festival.
