Conclusion

Organic website design is a relatively subjective style of design, as even small elements such as rounded corners can possibly make a site organic according to some, but not according to others. I have tried to include in this round-up sites that are obviously organic and that use organic and environmentally-friendly textures.

Hopefully you have been inspired by these choices.
