Greenopia is your local guide to green living. Our mission is a basic and big one: We set out to create a directory of eco-friendly retailers, services, and organizations and conducted extensive research on those we listed in the guide. This guide is not a paid directory; companies cannot pay to be included and all listees are included because they met our strict standards of eco-friendliness. They have already been screened for their sustainability in the product or service arena and are now being compared with “the best of the best.” Find out more from Greenopia founder Gay Browne.
