About Green Beings
Welcome to Green Beings, we hope you enjoy your visit.
If you, like us, are passionate about the environment and looking for new ways to minimize your impact and share ideas then you have come to the right place.
Green Beings is your guide through the complex and often conflicting information surrounding environmentally friendly products and practices.
The original idea for the site was to identify and build awareness of the most sustainable alternatives to some of the less sustainable things we use or consume in our daily lives. There are some remarkable eco-innovations becoming available that we think you should know about, so we will source, review and recommend them for you.
But the site is fundamentally a community endeavour: we want your input and collaboration and, in return, we will build our site around what our fellow Green Beings need to know.
We launched this site at the end of July 2008 and we see Green Beings as a ‘work in progress’. The pace of change in sustainability is phenomenal and continually moving as new legislation or standards are developed, fashions change and scientific knowledge improves.
Our dedicated team and the invaluable input from our members will keep Green Beings abreast of any major developments.
If this is your first visit let us take you through the site’s structure. Essentially there are four key areas:
- Green Room which displays articles and blogs.
- Environmentally Friendly Products section for showcasing eco-innovations and allowing for rating/feedback and comment.
- Special Offers we have sourced for you from some of our favourite eco-innovators.
- Green Tips section containing information on how to calculate and reduce your eco-footprint, information on eco-labels and new methods of reducing impacts of consumption, the pros and cons of carbon offsetting and tips on how to create your own eco-innovation.
We hope that you join us and contribute. Please check in regularly and let us know what you are thinking as your inputs will shape our evolution.
