Inside

Our Mission...

Our mission is to support the needs of an eco-conscious community by offering an online eco-products shop, environmental information and news, and ways to support environmental charities. We hope to educate and inspire everyone to live a greener life, and minimize our impact on the planet without compromising on quality and style items.

Purify Your Water

At GreenandMore.com, we want to assure you that our company believes in giving you more than just eco- conscious products and information. We understand it’s important to work on reducing our own impacts to the planet, so we look for areas in our business and products that do not meet green standards, and make a change. We also want to provide ways to help others create positive environmental change. This commitment results in the following list of our green initiatives which are underway:

Greener office practices

  • Purchase only recycled paper products for office and kitchen
  • Work with print shops that offer recycled paper and soy ink for promotional materials and catalogs
  • Choose technology partners based on their green practices, and commitment to using renewable energy destinations

Recycled and Recyclable Packaging

Recycle Icon

Our products are packaged with as little packaging as required to safely get the piece to your door. We use recycled cardboard boxes and recycled padding inside the box when possible. Most communities recycle cardboard at the curb so you too can continue to recycle the box and packaging. We have designed the majority of our product to ship in boxes that are as small as possible. This helps on a couple of different levels, 1) it makes the shipping less expensive and 2) it means more products can be shipped on the same truck, plane, boat, train, etc. helping to cut down on shipping emissions in general. We also ship the majority of our packages with UPS due to their eco initiatives. See the links below for more information on both.

Made in the USA

(needs to be reworded – taken from: http://www.lolldesigns.com/madeinUSA.php )

Many of the items we sell are made in the USA. See our list below. Our vendors begin by purchasing raw materials from the USA, and ensure manufacturing their products in the USA. This way, they reduce shipping distances both to their facility and out to our customers. Being made in the USA means a lot to us since we live and work here and so do our employees. You can be sure that our product manufacturer’s employees earn a better than living wage, receive health care benefits, Holiday and Vacation pay, are eligible for retirement plans, and actually like their job. By purchasing products from GreenandMore.com and other companies who also manufacture in the USA you help to perpetuate the local economies of the USA and North America directly. Thank you!
