GreenSpotter is a community mapping site to help you find green and eco-friendly businesses and resources in their area.
We have no definitive criteria about what makes something "green" except that it is more eco-friendly, health-aware, sustainable, or socially-conscious than similar businesses out there. We aim to help promote businesses that take these progressive stances — especially smaller and local businesses. We're not interested in listing big-box chains or businesses that "greenwash" just to attract a demographic.
If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch:
And if you like GreenSpotter, make sure to check out iLoveFreeWifi, a wifi-hotspot-finding site built using the same community-mapping engine.
