Green Alliance Green Card

I wanted to share with you a great local resource, the Green Alliance. Their mission is:

  • To increase the profits of the businesses that are having the least impact on the environment and through "Business-to-Business" mentoring and strength in partnership, encourage more sustainable business practices.
  • To educate and influence the public to think more about the goods and services they use in their own communities and to encourage more sustainable choices

One of the most fabulous things is their Green Alliance Green Card. I just signed up and I can't wait to use my card! Basically, for $35, you receive discounts at local business that are part of the Green Alliance. It's not very often you can save on local services and food, and to have all these discounts linked to one Green Card, marvelous idea! Some participating business and their discounts include:
  • Acorn Organic Salon: 20% off all salon services
  • Accent Magazine: 20% off one or two year subscriptions
  • Blue Moon Market, Cafe, & Yoga: 10% off entire Blue Moon Cafe menu, 1/2 price on first 5 class punch card at Blue Moon Yoga, 7% off everything in Blue Moon Fresh Market

Very interesting! We don't have anything like that around in the CT area that I know of, but it certainly is a good incentive for people who are "on the edge" between 2 products/companies/restaurants, etc. with one local and other other not. Plus, I think that it does encourage community building overall.

Thanks so much for the great exposure, and for helping us get the word out about this incredible deal. With more outlets like your blog out there, we know the Seacoast's commitment to local, sustainable businesses will continue to grow. Keep up the good work!
