Green America and the Green Business Network

Green America is the largest organization of its kind in North America that advocates for tens of thousands of green consumers and groups. Its mission is to harness economic power – the strength of consumers, investors, businesses, and the marketplace — to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society.

Originally founded in 1982 as “Co-op America”, Green America adopted its new name in January 2009 to better align itself with its goals amidst a changing environmental and economic climate.

One segment of Green America is the Green Business Network, which promotes and supports thousands of committed, environmentally and socially responsible businesses. General membership is open to all businesses, but only those companies that have passed Green America’s stringent certification process are accredited and may use the Green America seal. Canvas Host is proud to be a Gold accredited member of Green America.
