In a time where our environment's failing health is increasingly in the news and on everyone's minds, I felt that a site of this nature was absolutely necessary. Being Eco-Friendly doesn't have to be complicated or out-of-reach, and BigGreenCart upholds this idea by being at everyone's fingertips with the click of a mouse.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 26, 2009
BigGreenCart.com, making its official launch at the Go Green Expo in New York City on April 17th, is the first site where Green conscious consumers can not only purchase environmentally friendly goods but can also auction off and swap their green ware. Founder, Jean Moné, aims to facilitate the sale and exchange of environmentally friendly items from both businesses and individuals.
Says Ms. Moné, "In a time where our environment's failing health is increasingly in the news and on everyone's minds, I felt that a site of this nature was absolutely necessary. Being Eco-Friendly doesn't have to be complicated or out-of-reach, and BigGreenCart upholds this idea by being at everyone's fingertips with the click of a mouse."
BigGreenCart is forging a new frontier for environmentally conscious commerce. It is a place where the Green community can support one another and it is user-friendly for anyone interested in becoming more eco-friendly since the premise of purchasing via auctions or classifieds is familiar to most people. The site is also introducing a swap option, something that the company believes is going to blossom in the increasingly-eco-conscious future. This new platform is only part of what distinguishes BigGreenCart from all of the other e-commerce sites on the Web.
Sellers have the opportunity to list any environmentally-friendly item that they might be looking to sell, from natural body care products to recycled office supplies and more. These can either be brand new items that are eco-friendly and have been produced via eco-friendly means, or pre-used items that are deemed Green by living up to the standards of "Reuse, Reduce, and Recycle". Sellers can also opt to have their listing restricted to local buyers to reduce the cost, and carbon footprint, of shipping.
The site also features a comprehensive (and constantly-updated) Green Glossary to provide the public with an ever-growing Green dictionary, as well as its own Blog which highlights the latest eco-issues, tips on being and staying eco-aware, and their favorite Green products and services.
The business itself also operates with the environment in mind. Recycled paper, soy based inks and carbon-offset purchases are all part of the way that BigGreenCart runs.
"I recommend this virtual green shopping experience to anyone who wants to score great products while contributing to an eco world. And what's better than auctioning off or buying a gift that will keep on giving?", says Rachel Shelasky, President of Hollywood Fourth, a New York-based screen printing company that is increasingly introducing Green printing into it's lexicon.
