“GreenGlamGo includes more levels of ‘getting to green’ with talented, sustainable and handmade designers and retailers. If we all make small improvements, and are more inclusive, all the boats rise," says Carolyn Gerin and Clarissa Nicosia, Founders

GreenGlamGo is a mobile shopping app that’s also an educational tool: helping consumers shop with intention, vote with their dollars, cut through the clutter, and organize resources: bringing the best in green and sustainable fashion design and lifestyle into one app. GreenGlamGo opens the playing field: offering consumers the hippest, under the radar, green, and sustainable designers/brands that may be too undercapitalized to elbow their way into the global retail space, but are no less relevant.

GreenGlamGo - Carolyn Gerin is a serial entrepreneur and CEO of Top 100 Bridal Blog Antibride.com, creator of the bestselling 3-book Anti-Bride series published by Chronicle Books, and the first bridal blog to hit the iTunes Store: the Anti-Bride iPhone app. She also serves as Senior Editor of Destination I Do Magazine. Clarissa Nicosia, a fashion industry veteran with over 2000 fashion runway shows and trend presentations under her belt, has brought emerging eco designers and brands in beauty, kidswear, menswear, juniors, RTW, and couture to US consumers. She’s worked with Project Runway designers, Michael Kors, Valentino, Global Green USA, and served as a regional fashion coordinator at Nordstrom. In 2009, in a noisy San Francisco noodle shop, they noodled over how to marry Clarissa’s background in traditional retail and eco fashion with Carolyn’s agency background in art direction, publishing, product development, and technology. On a cocktail napkin, GreenGlamGo was born. They brought their concept to developers Luxus SF, applied for Nokia’s Open Screen Project Fund, and the rest is history. GreenGlamGo is a mobile site, smart phone application, and social platform that aggregates the most creative, under the radar, green, handmade, sustainable designers and retailers, bringing them to a wider audience with curated offerings, engaging content, and the ability for eco-fashionistas to shop ethically and stylishly.
