Green America is a not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1982. Their mission is to harness economic power—the strength of consumers, investors, businesses, and the marketplace—to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society.
They focus on economic strategies to solve social and environmental problems, mobilize people in their economic roles, empower people to take personal and collective action, work on issues of social justice and environmental responsibility and work to stop abusive practices and to create healthy, just and sustainable practices.
At the Alliance Center, Green America’s Better Paper Project is hosted. This project works closely with magazine publishers to choose the best recycled and credibly certified (currently only Forest Stewardship Council certification meets our stringent criteria) magazine paper for their publication.
