About the National Green Pages

I just found this wonderful resource! Very exciting:

The National Green Pages™ is a directory listing nearly 3,000 businesses that have made firm commitments to sustainable, socially just principles, including the support of sweatshop-free labor, organic farms, fair trade, and cruelty-free products.

For every category of conventional consumer goods and services, there are green businesses that can meet your needs. The National Green Pages™ lists baby care products, organic, fair trade, flavored teas, and fuel-efficient cars for rent among the thousands of products. With each purchase you make through the National Green Pages™, you know you’re supporting truly green businesses.

So, What's a Green Business?

Green businesses operate in ways that solve, rather than cause, both environmental and social problems. These businesses adopt principles, policies, and practices that improve the quality of life for their customers, their employees, communities, and the environment. Green businesses listed in Green America’s National Green Pages™ have passed a screening process that qualifies them for membership in our Green Business Network.

Ok, so this is all I have to offer this week. I'm growing EXTREMELY busy with my coursework and other responsiblities. Here's a quote that will serve to foreshadow next week's entry (which everyone, kids and adults alike, will be happy to read I'm sure):

I’m enthusiastic about the idea of adding to the Halloween traditional sense of sustainability and responsibility to our children."
