environmentally friendly: including organic cotton, hemp, pure grow wool,
natural latex, and sustainable wood.
"Few Americans realize the extent to which concerned
companies are creating practical solutions to today's social problems,"
says Alisa Gravitz, Co-op America's Executive Director. " Companies like
EcoPlanet are meeting the bottom line as well as playing a key role in
creating a better world."

Descriptions of these businesses are found in the National Green Pages, which
contains over one hundred and thirty categories and 2,200 companies, including
such well-known businesses as Tom's of Maine and Horizon Organic Dairy, as
well as thousands of smaller businesses.

companies which care about people and the planet.
