The awards recognise Logan residents who have taken steps to improve the cities environmental and sustainability credentials.

This year there will be four award categories - Eco Champion, Junior Eco Champion, Eco Business and Eco Organisation.

Logan councillor Jennie Breene said the awards were open to residents, businesses, schools and organisations.

"There are so many residents and organisations across our Logan community who are working hard to make our city more sustainable," she said.

"The 2019 Logan Eco Awards are an ideal opportunity to showcase their amazing efforts and for us to all say thank you."

People are encouraged to nominate people for picking up rubbish during a morning walk, sharing sustainable lifestyle tips on social media, reducing waste by composting at home or switching to sustainable products at work.

Previous award winners include Griffith University, IKEA, electronic recycling group Substation 33 and Healthy Cooking Company.

People and organisations recognised in the past include Land for Wildlife members Kim Downs and Liz Hall-Downs, 11-year-old girl Savannah Christopher, Berrinba Wetlands BushCare leader Roxanne Ives and the Logan River branch of Native Plants Queensland.

Winners will be thanked for their efforts at the Logan Eco Action Festival on Sunday, May 26 at Griffith University Logan campus.

Nominations close on Friday, March 29.
