Environmentally superior services
Find healthy alternatives to many of the services you depend on.
In addition to environmentally preferable products, Green Home offers a range of services that satisfy the same criteria of promoting resource conservation and minimizing toxic output. Services in a way are even more important than products, as they connect people with their local communities.
For every household service you are familiar with, there is a green alternative. There are green plumbers, floor refinishers, gardeners, carpet cleaners, house painters, exterminators, etc. And these businesses have a hard time finding their local business, just as people have a hard time locating these services in their community.
Green Home's Service Center is the first step in the direction of creating a comprehensive ZIP code-based lookup of local green services - that is our true goal. We want to create a "green filter" to drive dollars back into local communities and help grow these fledgling markets. Today, we offer information and links in the following areas:
Our aim is to expand this list to include all the categories listed above, as well as home inspections for toxicity, detoxification programs, access to local rebates in combination with green appliance sales, and more. In the meantime, always try to find the greenest version of whatever service you are seeking out. Try the pest abatement service that uses freezing or sound rather than harsh chemicals. Find out if there's a local guide to green merchants, and use it.
