Co-op America becomes Green America

Their mission stays the same, as they ensure that the cooperative spirit remains
embedded within what they mean when they say green: social and economic justice,
community and environmental health, people and the planet.

Today’s interconnected crises (economic, climate, food, water, health) require
solutions from an economy that works for both people and the planet — which means
that their work together is more important that ever.

For the past 25 years, together with their members and allies, they’ve worked to
build the green economy into what it is today, and for the next 25 years, they’ll interconnect all of their green economy work with two overarching goals:

Setting the standard for “green” — No greenwashing here! Only companies that pass
their rigorous screens including both social and environmental criteria will ever
make it into their Green Business Network™ or exhibit at their Green Festivals™, while their Responsible Shopper program gives you all the dirt on the worst companies. What’s more, they’ll always take the greenest stance on the issues of the day: from stopping sweatshops (here in the US and all across the globe) to advancing only the greenest forms of energy (i.e. saying “no” to dirty coal forever, and pushing for efficiency and renewable energy).

Rapidly scaling up all the green economy solutions — The time is now for the green economy to become the mainstream economy. They can make living wages and zero waste the norm, not the exceptions. They can make organic food and nontoxic products into household staples. They can make green energy and green buildings as commonplace as gas guzzlers and big-box stores. Their job is to accelerate the green economy as the foundation for a green society—one that works for all.

And that’s why their new name is Green America. Their Web site can now be found at www.GreenAmericaToday.org.
