Welcome. You’re standing in the doorway of our virtual home, Blue Planet Green Living (or BPGL if you wish). Come on in and look around.
This site is brought to you by a couple of marketing specialists who love our planet and its inhabitants. We’re on a quest to find organic, green, and natural products as well as services that support a healthy environment. As BPGL grows, we’ll be building a road map to guide you through the maze of websites and introduce you to earth-friendly businesses and people that we believe in.
Our focus — where the two of us really shine — is helping what we call ecopreneurs, the folks who launch start-up companies that are focused on helping the planet. We also like to showcase the undiscovered (or little-known) individuals or families who are trying to help in their own unique ways. But, big or small, we’ll lend our support to anyone who is working to sustain the earth, keeping it blue and green (and every lovely color in between), just like it’s supposed to be.
This site isn’t just about ecology; it’s also about the economy. As consumers, we can change the world by changing what we buy. And in these challenging times, we all need to be “Earth Wise. Money Smart.” It’s now or never.
Come visit us often. We’ll introduce you to businesses and people we respect. We’ll tell you about books that might interest you. We’ll review products you might want to try. And we’ll alert you of events you might want to attend.
JOIN OUR COMMUNITY
When you find something or someone you like on our site, please consider giving them your business. We’ve chosen to feature them because we believe in the work that they do and the products and services they sell.
We’re a welcoming place, so please join in the dialog. We hope you’ll give us your recommendations about products, sites, events, books, and people you like — or politely disagree with. We have a few guidelines that we use to screen those we feature. Here’s what we look for:
- Organic, natural, and/or “green” products (as defined by the company)
- Services that promote sustainability, healthy living, and a healthy world
- Excellent quality
- Ethical behavior
- No child labor
- No exploitative advertising
- No animal cruelty
If you discover that a product or service you find on our site doesn’t live up to these standards, please let us know. We’ll check it out. If we agree, we’ll take down any references to them. We’re doing our best to live up to our own standards. As Kermit the Frog so aptly said, “It’s not easy being green.” But it’s getting easier all the time, and it’s well worth any extra effort.
So, come join our community. Take off your shoes and stay awhile. Tell us what you think. Introduce us to your own friends and favorites.
Please stop by often. Our virtual door is always open.
We invite you to meet our Blue Planet Green Living team at Profiles/BPGL Crew.
If you’d like to write for us — or be part of our video team— send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
