“People want to go green, but they often don’t know where to start or even what questions to ask,” says Joey Shepp, founder of Green Maven. “Green Maven makes searching for all things green as easy as using Google. If you search for socks, you get organic socks. If you search for cars, you get hybrid cars. Our mission is to make it easy for mainstream to go green.”

“Going green has never been easier than with Green Maven,” reports Lee Ettleman, TIME.COM. “Editors at the site hand-pick web pages and news items related to the environmental movement—about everything from eco-friendly cities to organic socks—that can then be searched using the Google tool on the homepage or browsed through using a directory.”

Visitors can search on, or they can take the green web with them by installing an easy browser plug-in. Businesses who want their sites included in the green search engine can submit their URLs to Green Maven’s team of editors for approval.
