Jul 25.08 | Ted Hart launches Green Nonprofits organization www.greennonprofits.org

"For years I've heard from nonprofits around the world of their interest to support and protect the environment. Because they did not perceive themselves to be experts, it was unclear what they could do to make a difference and still run a successful nonprofit/NGO. Today, GreenNonprofits, Inc. provides that answer; provides that path for every nonprofit around the world to make significant changes that when combined together will create a powerful force for the greening of this industry." - Ted Hart, CEO

GreenNonprofits was founded to be an accessible source of information about greening your nonprofit workplace, and to be a desktop tool for any nonprofit to become green[er].

As people and corporations around the world become more "green" they in turn expect the nonprofits they support to also take proactive steps to protect the environment. GreenNonprofits will lead the way in helping Nonprofits/NGOs around the world meet this challenge. "Ted Hart, CEO" read more
