Greenopedia is a convenient place to learn about the sustainability topics that interest you most, and how they support your lifestyle. We cover everything from how to reduce toxins in your day-to-day life, to new technologies in water and energy management. Our articles, videos and infographics break down complex concepts quickly and clearly, and help you easily integrate these sustainable ideas into your daily life.
Content Written for YOU
Our content focuses primarily on how sustainable topics, practices and issues apply to YOU. We prioritize you first because while the environment is obviously in danger, the only way to feasibly make progress in fixing it is to make sure we recognize the personal benefits we gain along the way.
Brands that Align with Your Values
We will soon be introducing brand profiles to provide our readers with a quick snapshot of what brands are doing sustainably. These will give you a convenient way to glimpse behind the scenes and find brands whose practices and initiatives align with your values.
We’re not rating brands, or telling you who you should or should not support. Everyone’s values are different, and only you can decide what matters most to you. The profiles will simply provide a way for you to review and compare the information.
Connecting the Dots
Greenopedia is a convenient place to connect with sustainable information that matters to you, and will soon be a place to connect with brands with similar values as well. To take it a step further, we will also connect the brands to content that is relevant to their business and sustainability initiatives.
With this circle complete, you will have everything you need to make everyday lifestyle and purchase choices that you can feel good about.

Greenopedia is still a work in progress, but we’re moving quickly! So take a look around and let us know what you think! Feel free to use our contact form or email us directly at email@example.com
Who writes your content?
Our content is provided to us through partnerships with subject matter experts and forward-thinking universities, and by our internal team of writers.
When will brand profiles be available?
Soon! We are already working with a several brands to build their profiles and will have them published for you shortly.
Where does the info on the brand profiles come from?
All of the information is provided and/or approved by the brands themselves.
Do you verify the info brands provide?
We don’t. But given the wide-openness of the internet and the incredible ease of information sharing, it would be quite risky for a well-known brand to post false information. That said, we will soon be adding additional features that enhance transparency and ensure that brands leading the way in sustainability can feel safe in the company they keep.
Why don't you have ratings?
Truly sustainable products don’t really exist, because everything has a tradeoff. And only you can decide which tradeoffs best align with your values. Instead, we give you the facts quickly and easily, so you can compare brands and find the ones you feel good about.
Why do brands "recommend" content? Do they pay for this?
Our content isn’t only relevant to your lifestyle; much of this content also relates directly to the kinds of products brands make, or how they make them. Therefore brands will be able to “Recommend” content that aligns with their sustainability initiatives, so you can more easily connect with the brands that share your interests. And yes, they do pay for this feature.

- Collaboration means "yes, and", not "yes, but". (Thanks method!)
