Power of the Greenified Seal

April 30, 2012

Going green may be the hip thing to do, but it is more than just a trend. Many people are trying to incorporate being greener into their everyday lives and are making deliberate choices such as searching out companies who are green. Which brings me to today’s topic – why the Green Business Alliance Greenified Seal matters.

When you display the Greenified Seal on your website, your windows or in your office, you are telling your customers and clients that you have made a conscious effort to adopt environmentally friendly business practices. In fact, you have made such an effort that you have third party verification – someone else other than you is saying “yes, this company has demonstrated a commitment to going green.”

The Greenified Seal assures the new breed of consumers that the business they are considering is one that cares about the environment and its employees. There are organizations that one can purchase a membership to, but in order to receive the Green Business Alliance Greenified Seal, the company actually has to embrace a green philosophy. This step is enough to create sales and business from environmentally concerned consumers.


Every Day is Earth Day!

April 24, 2012

Earth Day 2012 has come and gone. This past Sunday, April 22nd, countries spanning the globe came together in celebration of our planet. Reports say that more than 1 billion people across 192 countries celebrated Earth Day this year. Schools, Universities, Corporations, Individuals and Governments rallied, cleaned, celebrated and performed in honor of this 42nd annual event.

Disney Nature was in on the action as well with the premiere of their newest film, Chimpanzees. It has become a tradition for Disney Nature to premiere a film on Earth Day each year. They are a graphic and jaw-dropping reminder of how beautiful our planet is and how careful we must be with our precious resources.

We hope that you had a Green Earth Day and that one of your resolutions is to treat every day as Earth Day. We remind you to Greenify today for a better tomorrow!

Earth Day 2012...Mobilizing the Earth

April 4, 2012

You may be counting down the days to Earth Day, but I assure you, we at the Green Business Alliance, we are counting down the minutes to April 22, 2012.

This year the theme of Earth Day 2012 is "Mobilize the Earth." It is the 42nd Anniversary of Earth Day.

When Earth Day began in 1970, it was designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment.

It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, (D) Wisconsin as an environmental sort of “teach-in.” He announced his proposal to a fledgling conservation group in 1969, hoping that a grass-roots effort would prove to Washington that Americans in every state did care and at the same time, light a fire under the country's Greenification efforts, still in their infancy at the time.

After a bit of rooting around for a name, “Earth Day” just seemed logical, according to all involved and they got started organizing the actual event. It was clearly a movement just getting off the ground. The organizers, mostly volunteers and some still in school, were thrilled when New York City agreed to take part with then-Mayor John Lindsay saying that he would shut down Fifth Avenue for the event.

By the time the day rolled around, participation had swelled to 20 million Americans. There were massive coast-to-coast rallies and thousands of college and university-organized protests against the deterioration of the environment. Groups that had been fighting pollution in factors and industrial areas, trying to clean up oil spills, toxic dumps and raw sewage, and prevent spoilage from pesticides and chemical fertilizers used and over-used in our environment, all suddenly came together for a day of celebrating the Earth and recognizing their common values.

There are many ways to become involved...

•  Attend an Earth Day Event
•  Organize an Earth Day Event
•  Greenify your home or business
•  Join an Earth Day Campaign
