“In another bid to bring greener products and services to eco-minded consumers, GreenDeals, another groupon-style website with a sustainability twist, offers discounts and deals (which are 30-60% off retail price) from national green businesses. The new site offers two types of green deals:
1. A GreenDeal Coupon which is purchased on our site and is available to redeem online at a merchant’s e-commerce website.
2. A product sale where items are sold and shipped to the consumer.
GreenDeals offers anything from reusable water bottles to natural skin care products to eco-friendly clothingto vegan chocolates to nontoxic cleaning products.

All of the GreenDeals are limited in quantity which creates a limited supply available in the market place. We wanted to know what it takes to start an online green marketplace like GreenDeals. Our interview with the green entrepreneur Jonah Mytro follows.”
