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 clients, employees, communities and the environment.
For every category of conventional consumer goods and services, there are green businesses that can meet your needs. You can find thousands of other green businesses in the National Green PagesTM.
