The Green Standard

Such commitment earns the Green America Seal of Approval, one of the most trusted and authentic achievements in green business. It is how you can be certain that each of the booths you visit in the Green Festival Marketplace is dedicated to upholding both sustainable and ethical business standards.

The Green America Seal of Approval sets the standard for the more than 300 local, regional and national green businesses who participate in each Green Festival, as well as the thousands of green businesses featured in the National Green Pages available online and in print. Consumers can trust that businesses bearing the Green America Seal of Approval operate in ways that protect the environment, support worker’s rights and livelihoods and build and develop strong and just communities worldwide.

Green Festival is about evolving. At Green Festival, adopt a new green career, discover how to grow a nourished garden of organic vegetables, discuss important issues impacting local communities and learn from inspiring activists and authors. Not only every business, but also every participant and every topic that forms the Green Festival community holds the Green America Seal of Approval for motivating positive solutions within the local and global community

Not every business measures up to the high standards of the Green America Seal of Approval. As a result, many companies begin to ask questions, educate themselves and create internal change that translates to positive external value.
