– A Guide for Greener Living

Greenopia.comWe all strive to lead a more eco-friendly life; Greenopia is your guide for doing so. The newly updated website is part city-guide, part lifestyle-guide to help you reduce your carbon footprint.

Currently servicing New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco (with guides slated for Chicago, Austin, Detroit, and Las Vegas) Greenopia analyzes and reviews the “greenness” of local businesses and organizations. Greenopia also features interviews and blogs, with topics ranging from “Curb Your Carbon with Laurie David” to “Diaper Duty Dilemma.” The site sells hard-copy city guides starting at $16.95. In Their Own Words

“We are with you in aiming to create a more sustainable, sensible and sane world. Our team will bring you the latest eco info and our listings will guide you to local resources, businesses and services so you can do what you do every day—greener.”

Why It Might Be A Killer

Greenopia is great because they don’t skimp on their listings. Every category features a handful (at least) of local businesses and organizations that operate in an eco-friendly manner. Moreover, with “green” increasingly becoming a marketing term, it is important to have an independent organization to analyze the actual ecological validity of a product or service (Greenopia does not charge or accept money for their listings).

Some Questions About

Can Greenopia expand to include non location-specific products, such as consumer electronics or other products that can be universally purchased online or in stores? This would positively affect a much larger audience.
