Much like Groupon does for general shoppers, offers discounts and deals from local and national green online businesses that are approved by Green America. features a new deal or discount every 24-48 hours.

"Mass culture encourages people to run out of their house, now at midnight, and go shopping," says Todd Larsen, Green America Corporate Responsibility Director. "Why not wait another day or more and buy something that helps others Green Deals makes it possible to give great gifts for the holidays, while also giving back to the planet.”
