What if you found out that the company that makes your favorite t-shirt does a lot more than just make clothes? At Green Planet, we're here to help you find companies that care about progress, not just profit. Advertisements are constantly boasting "green" this and "green" that, but we're not into buzzwords. We're into change. We believe that an educated consumer makes for a smart economy. We'll help you discover some of the most innovative products on the market, the people behind them, and the great work they do.
Our festival is different. We're not here to offer some cookie-cutter plan for a sustainable lifestyle. We don't tell you what to buy- we put everything in front of you and allow you to make that decision on your own. Our festival is the first of its kind, featuring large national brands as well as local businesses in your area. We're here to level the playing field between the big guys and the little guys to give you an accurate snapshot of what's available in your own city. When you support these companies, you're investing in a better tomorrow.
Implementing sustainable living on a large scale is not an easy task. It's going to require unity amongst individuals, businesses, and organizations. We're here to be the spark for that change. Our mission is to empower consumers like you to do your part and work towards this common goal. Green Planet Festival will forge valuable relationships across a variety of industries, creating a brand new opportunity for collaboration and growth within the green sector. It's now your time to show the rest of the world what sustainability means to you.
