Being Green

We've received a number of questions over the years about making purchasing choices that are environmentally sound. The July 2005 Consumer Reports announced a new website so consumers can have reliable information in choosing "green" products. So far, the categories are autos, appliances, home & garden, electronics, and food, with more sections to be added. The site at GreenerChoices.org, was launched, appropriately, on April 22.
It also shows how you can get rid of old cell phones, computers, and other electronics. "You might even get some money for them," the article states, but most links are donation sites.

You, or your environmentally-concerned clients, may also be interested in:

  • The Green Products Alliance, a "consortium of manufacturers and marketers who make and sell extraordinarily natural personal care products."
  • Green Seal, an "independent, non-profit organization that strives to achieve a healthier and cleaner environment by identifying and promoting products and services that cause less toxic pollution and waste, conserve resources and habitats, and minimize global warming and ozone depletion."
  • Co-op America's National Green Pages, "The nation's only directory of screened and approved green businesses."

For a second I thought it was an autobiographical essay by Roger or Kermit the Frog.
