Frequently Asked Questions

How do we know the companies you list are really green and ethical?

We personally speak to all prospective customers wishing to advertise with us. We only accept those who can demonstrate that the goods or services they offer are green and ethically sound. In addition we ask all businesses advertising using our extended listing to provide a summary of their green credentials which can be accessed from the listing. In that way you can decide for yourselves which businesses you would like to support before contacting them.

You are advertising a company that I know not to have any such green credentials. Will you remove them?

We will not knowingly include any enterprise on this site that is acting unethically or is not making efforts to be environmentally friendly. However, if you disagree with any claims an advertiser is making then please contact us. We will investigate and indeed remove them from our site where necessary.

I can’t find what I’m searching for in your listings so where should I look?

At present we are still building up our database and are constantly adding new businesses and services to our listings. Please let us know if you’re struggling to find an item or service by sending an e-mail to contactus@greenfinder.co.uk and we will do our best to help.

How can I find out about local green events in my area?

If you’re interested in local events such as Farmer’s markets, wildlife walks and environmental group meetings please sign up for our free monthly newsletter which we will email to you.

How do I find out about a certain environmental issue or cause?

Our charity category lists many organisations that work on specific campaigns and causes. If you’re interested in a particular cause please use these listings to find a relevant group who will be able to help you.

I know a great shop which I think should be listed, what should I do?

Please let us know of any shops, groups or businesses that you can recommend to the users of the site. Many of the companies we list have been personally recommended.
