Buying Green

Every year, the average American household will spend $17,000 on basics including food, clothing, body care, housewares etc.

Now imagine that every dollar spent went toward promoting healthy, organic food; ending sweatshops and promoting Fair Trade; and creating a national marketplace for green products.

That’s what buying green is all about.  It’s about making purchasing decisions that help create a better world to leave to our children and children everywhere.
