GreenTowns.com, the national network for local sustainability, announced new products and services to connect and support green efforts in 15,000 communities across America.
The unique, new offerings include:
- The GreenTowns Guides, featuring reviews by independent experts at Greenopia of 2012 car models, major companies in 14 industries, each of the 50 states and the best of green living.
- Enhanced community pages for 15,000 communities featuring thousands of new, local green initiatives, direct access to local green resources, and links to the most popular articles in the GreenTowns Guides.
- New social media tools, including GreenTowns Connect, which updates network members monthly on local sustainability efforts, and lets them connect with others in their county or ask questions of experts in nine green categories (Building, Connections, Energy, Food, Land & Conservation, Recycling, Transportation, and Water).
To support the green economy, GreenTowns now also allows green businesses to create a free profile, which is featured in the network section of their community page. To support local green initiatives, GreenTowns also encourages sustainability leaders to post their organization’s profile, feature their initiatives and share their green events with the 2.5 million monthly users of GreenTowns.com and its sister community siteAmericanTowns.com. And, using the new open platform, members can easily connect via GreenTowns’LinkedIn group, Facebook, Twitter, and the GreenTowns Talk blog.
