Yes It's Organic Approved to Green America's Green Business Network

Yes It's Organic achieved acceptance into Green America's Green Business Network through a very detailed assessment of their business practices and the accuracy of statements on their store site.

Green America told Yes It's Organic, in their congratulatory letter, "You are among [the] progressive business leaders who are solving today's tough social and environmental problems."

Yes It's Organic is among a select group of companies to achieve this recognition to show their support of the "greening" of America through action and purpose. According to Green America, "to be qualified to be listed in the National Green Pages, companies must demonstrate that they:
Focus on using business as a tool for positive social change.
Are "values-driven," as well as profit-driven.
Are socially and environmentally responsible in the way they source, manufacture, and market their products and run their offices and factories.
Are committed to and employ extraordinary and innovative practices that benefit: 1) workers, 2) communities, 3) customers, and 4) the environment."

"Yes It's Organic has been committed to educating its customers about the organic textile industry since its inception," says Ed Mass President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, "We are excited and honored to be recognized, for our social and environmental responsibility, by the Green America Green Business Network."

What makes a business "green"? Green America Green Business Network defines a green business as the following:
"Green businesses operate in ways that solve, rather than cause, both environmental and social problems.
These businesses adopt principles, policies, and practices that improve the quality of life for their customers, their employees, communities, and the environment."

Mass says, "We take pride in our green and organic standards. We've eco-screened hundreds of everyday items, including adult organic clothing, organic yoga apparel, organic bedding, sustainable bamboo furniture, and organic baby clothes. That's a small portion of what we offer and we're building our inventory everyday!"

Green America is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to harnessing the economic power of consumers, investors and businesses to promote social justice and environmental sustainability.

Visit Yes It's Organic to support your personal health and educate yourself on the personal and environmental benefits of organic clothing bedding, and other items. Yes It's Organic also provides organic logo imprinted shirts and other apparel for corporations, hospitality, and events.

Ed Mass is President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, an online store for Organic, Fair Labor, and Eco Friendly Green clothing including organic clothing for adults to organic baby clothes, organic bedding, organic sheets, organic towels, sustainable bamboo furniture, organic logo embroidered shirts and promotional products for organizations wanting to improve their environmental footprint, and more.
