About Green Home

Green Home offers thousands of trusted products for home and business from compostable goods to organic mattresses and offers sound advice for living green every day. More than just about the environment – Green Home is about healthy simple choices. Every product is tagged with one or more top ten green attributes that include: Health Conscious, Organic, USA Made, Sustainable, Non-Toxic, Compostable, Energy Efficient, Water Conserving, Socially Conscious, and Recycled/Upcycled. The Green Home Team takes the time to listen to their customers’ needs and truly cares about the people and products they represent.

Green Home’s mission is simple: green the home, green the planet. Greenhome.com is the all-in-one online store and resource center for green living and green business. Making a difference since 1999, Greenhome.com makes it easy to green first what matters most. Whether the change is looking to live a healthier, simple life, or to become a more sustainable business owner, Green Home starts in our own backyards, literally, by effortlessly shifting to sustainable consumption habits. 

Green Home became a B Corp because it is what comes naturally to us and has since 1999. We feel every product we sell improves and supports the sustainable community we are trying to grow and being a B Corp allows us to prove we proudly walk the walk and talk the talk.

The Change We Seek®

The real power to make change lies with our everyday choices, and starts at home. Greenhome.com truly believes that positive change can happen with simple adjustments to everyday habits. Choosing a non-toxic cleaner and compostable trash bag doesn’t disrupt the flow, but improve it. These changes affect everyone around us; ourselves, our family, our community, and our environment. Green first what matters most.

Greenhome.com is committed to selling only proven green products in a wide variety of categories including, but of course not limited to, solar LED lighting, compostable clear cups, recycled plastic toys, and sustainable yoga mats. Personal attention is given to everyone who is ready to make the change to better themselves, their business, and the environment around us.  Change is not just about preserving the environment, but is about the people and community we support and Greenhome.com is proud to be one of the original pioneers of this movement.
