A Long Island not-for-profit group has seen such an increase in inquiries for green expert services and goods that it decided to compile and publish what it calls the region’s first annual LIGreenGuide.
The printed and online versions of the LIGreenGuide will offer practical information for consumers seeking greener choices, featuring tips on such topics as “Cool Lifestyles”, “Solar Roofs”, “How to Lose 5000 Pounds (of CO2) in 30 Days”, and “What To Look For in Carbon-Offsets”. The LIGreenGuide will also feature a directory of green businesses and professionals as a handy one-stop reference for anyone shopping for a greener future.
The LIGreenGuide will be available starting in September, in time for RELI’s Annual Long Island Solar Tour and Open House on October 4th. RELI will distribute the printed guide free of charge throughout Labor Day 2009 and have a continuously updated web version. The directory will list services in a number of categories, including building professionals such as green architects, builders, and landscapers, energy efficiency and renewable energy contractors, and retailers of green products.
Listings are free of charge but interested businesses must complete an online form to be considered for inclusion in the directory. Deadline for the printed version is August 1, 2008.
