What are the Green Pages?

The Green Pages are a portal to ethical and sustainable products. The Green Pages does not sell any of its own products. All the products on the website are from a wide range of independent suppliers, all of whom are have committed to operating according to a core set of values that are listed below.

This directory is the most complete and most comprehensive free environmental directory in the world. In addition to the services and products, the Green Pages lists organizations concerned with environmental issues and environmental education and other non-government organisations.

The size and diversity of the Internet is massive and it continues to grow. And with such a large amount of information it can be difficult for Internet users to find what they are looking for. People can spend hours searching for something without ever finding it because they are often overwhelmed with too much irrelevant information. Green Pages will end that by facilitating the connection of companies and providers of service to a global audience.

Green Pages is an accurate, reliable, high quality, and cost-effective service. It is a quick and user friendly way to find up-to-date information on leading suppliers of environmental friendly products and services around the world. It is an easy-to-use, point-and-click type directory suitable for a hand held device such as a mobile phone or blackberry or a personal computer.

The products and services are grouped into ten main categories and up to 30 sub-categories. For example under BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION you will find Architects, Developers & Designers and under FOOD & DRINKS you will find Organic Distributors & Wholesalers. Nearly a third of global output is traded internationally and the Green Pages is a global directory divided into five regions Asia Pacific, Europe & Russia, USA & Canada, Latin America and Africa & Middle East. To limit the impact of transport on the environment we encourage users to shop as local as is practicable.

Green Pages is a tool to link consumers with suppliers around the globe. A search tool allows you to locate products and services alphabetically according to name, category, region, or using keywords.

The Green Pages is a global directory, covering the entire spectrum of products, techniques and services and is sponsored by a respected independent not for profit organisation Information for Action. Having started in 1999 with our first environmental directory, Information for Action is committed to providing information to increase the effectiveness of all organizations working to protect the environment.
