Green Merchant Alliance - Sustainable & Responsible Business of the Week

Green Merchant Alliance (Aspen CO) is a Merchant Services Provider. So how did a credit card processing company make our Sustainable & Responsible Business of the Week?

Green Merchant Alliance supports clean renewable energy, public education, and conservation initiatives. When your business signs up with Green Merchant Alliance for credit card transaction processing, Green Merchant Alliance will use 15% of its profit towards the purchase of wind farm renewable energy certificates (REC). Each REC prevents the release of 1392 pounds of carbon dioxide. Companies are also free to purchase additional RECs in order to offset additional emissions.

The company's website features a carbon calculator, tips for reducing your carbon footprint, and daily tips directly from National Geographic's Green Guide. In addition, the website features educational information, such as "Global Warming 101" and "What is Renewable Energy?".

Sustainable & Responsible Business of the Week is a weekly behind-the-scenes look at what businesses are doing to be more sustainable and responsible in their operations.

Online business owners are often worried regarding how much to spend on marketing their products but it is nevertheless true that excellent online marketing act as an ecommerce solution and plays a pivotal role in accelerating online business. Marketing is a necessary expense and not some luxury which only large businesses can afford. However, businesses with limited funds should be careful while preparing budgets for their marketing campaigns.
