    Your tips for Small Business Success

    LetsGoGreen.biz helps consumers "go green" at home and work

     

    "Green" is the new, well, green, and LetsGoGreen.biz is one of the leading, cutting edge companies selling hundreds of eco-friendly green products from biodegradable plates, cups, and utensils to organic cleaning supplies, recycled paper goods, pet and kids products, and just about anything else you can think of.

     

    Founded in Atlanta in 2007 by Kyle Jodice, LetsGoGreen.biz has not only developed a loyal nationwide consumer base, but has successfully partnered with green-minded groups from Los Angeles to Atlanta to New York to help sponsor events encouraging people to substitute regular, everyday household products for green alternatives that not only help the environment but in many cases (such as CFL light bulbs and low-flow shower heads) help reduce household energy costs as well.

     

    We have been featured in regional and national news programs, magazines, and pretty much any other place where people who care about making a difference in the environment gather online to help spread the word (attached is a clip from WSB-TV in Atlanta    which featured Kyle Jodice as one of their "Going Green Champions" for his efforts). LetsGoGreen.biz also offers a Green Fundraising Program that is currently being used by more than 275 schools, churches, community groups and other organizations all over the country who raise money by selling eco-friendly green products rather than the usual cookies or other typical fundraising items.

     

    The mission  of LetsGoGreen.biz is to instill in folks the idea that there are green alternatives they may not be aware of for many if not most of the everyday products they already use. While our warehouse and headquarters is located in the greater Atlanta area, we  have no "bricks and mortar" stores but sell strictly on line, shipping to all 50 states (free to anywhere in the Continental U.S.), with most orders going out the same day they are placed.

     

    In addition to one of the videos we uploaded, here is a recent article that ran on the Environmental News Network that tells the story of how Mr. Jodice was inspired to start his company after watching a Diane Sawyer special on Earth Day over three years ago:

    In short, this is an inspiring story of what one person can do to help themselves, their community, and the environment, while creating "green" jobs in the process. We would be thrilled to be considered for a spot on HLN's Small Business Successs segment.
