Plastic recycling of bottles and containers


New sections on our website.

"Lighting" and "Recycling" are two of our most popular article categories on our newsy website, so we're breaking them out -- and putting out a call for YOUR SOLUTION STORIES. If you have green, sustainable, environmentally friendly solutions, please send us a brief overview of what you provide to the California business, organization or public marketplace. We'd like our readers to hear your solution story.

Search Engine Optimization for YOUR website.

Our team can help green solution companies rank higher in Google. If you aren't getting the traffic you want to your website, we can now provide you with practical SEO services.

Based on our work with our own sites and consulting with marketing clients, we provide "delicious vanilla SEO" (a step above plain vanilla!) with content and meta tag optimization. We help you learn SEO basics to take your pages to the next step in prospect searches. And at a reasonable cost. "SEO" is probably your best PR investment these days because it works 24/7 for you on your own website.

California Green Solutions offers something most SEO consultants can't -- we also link to your green solutions website from our highly ranked site, sharing some "Google-juice" with you!

Call Carolyn Allen to discuss what search strategy you would like to accomplish.

Green & Environmental Consultants Network

It's hard to find the right consultant to fit your needs, especially for smaller companies who want a consultant here in California. That's why we're launching the "California Consulting Hub". Consultants and companies who offer unbiased audits, evaluations, recommendations and technical services to green companies are welcome to apply.

EARLY BIRD OFFER: Because this Hub will be organically designed, we are offering One Year Free Membership to early applicants who will provide their practical input and suggestions, and help the program grow. Just apply SOON to get in of the limited number of slots for this advisory program.

Apply for membership & submit a feature article about your services for inclusion in the website as your FIRST BENEFIT for belonging.

A few "Greener" thoughts from Carolyn

The news isn't getting a lot better regarding climate change. Or scarcity of natural resources. But technologies are being developed to help companies reduce their energy usage, water usage and air quality. That's hopeful. We continue to post daily news about "solutions" -- partial, granted, but solutions that we can consider, select and implement to make incremental improvements.

Timing is always important. And timing includes the need to address the major issues facing us as an economy, a free nation and secure homes for our families. Many companies are taking steps -- and we encourage you and support your strategies to do your best, as well. Our struggle to reduce impact on the earth is the challenge of our age. Let's take it seriously.
