Green America: Economic Action for a Just Planet

Green America is a not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1982 that went by the name Co-op America until January 1, 2009. Its mission is to harness economic power -- the strength of consumers, investors, businesses, and the marketplace -- to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society.

Their programs empower people to make changes in their personal lives and to join together with others in economic action for a better world based on four powerful strategies:

- Empowering individuals to make purchasing and investing choices that promote social justice and environmental sustainability;

- Demanding an end to corporate irresponsibility through collective economic action;

- Promoting green and fair trade business principles while building the market for businesses adhering to these principles;

- Building sustainable communities in the US and abroad.

Green America works on issues of social justice and environmental responsibility, seeing those issues as completely linked in the quest for a sustainable world. It’s what they mean when they say “green.” Better World Club is proud to share that vision and to partner with Green America in the pursuit of its mission.
