Their main activity must be focused on preserving the environment; they must mainly promote or sell eco-friendly products, services, or lifestyle choices; they must have supporting environmental certifications or membership; or they must be registered as a government organization, a non-governmental organization, a not-for-profit, or a charity. A member activation fee of only $35 is required at registration. There are no other payments and all future upgrades are free to registered members.
First launched in late 2005 as social enterprise in the form of an unincorporated association, EcoFirms.org works to connect environmentally-friendly companies and organizations worldwide to assist in forming partnerships that support their endeavours to contribute to a more sustainable future for the planet. With thousands of green business links, EcoFirms.org is an emerging leader in the environmental directory space, covering a wide variety of sectors including consumer products, tourism, trade, services, food and dining, health, media, and more.
