GreenMaven.com makes it easier to screen for green. How do we compile thousands of green sites into one search engine? Our team of GreenMaven.com editors select and approve all of our sites.
Here are the guiding principles on which the editors base their decisions:
Green Values - The site must demonstrate green values clearly on the homepage. GreenMaven.com does not necessarily determine whether a business, organization or individual is Green, rather our editors consider how the website addresses green issues, ideas or principles. Our Green Maven editors take special care to select websites that resonate with green consumers.
Quality - The site must be complete, fully functioning, and demonstrate an acceptable level of quality according to today’s web standards. No offensive material is permitted, including obscenity or nudity.
Green certifications - Third-party validation, such as Green America green business certification, are considered and can boost a site's chances of inclusion.
Note: These are guiding principles and not an objective set of criteria. Our expert team of editors - our Green Mavens - retain full editorial authority to approve or reject any submitted websites. We do not guarantee inclusion of any websites in our search engine or directory.
