WHAT WE DO

SELECT

We carefully hand select products made by only socially and environmentally responsible brands, ranging from fashion, furniture, and food to everyday items.

RATE

We rate the products we select based on our 5 greener principles and will determine what greener qualities they possess. Read more about Our Principles.

We’ll research & let you know if a product is:

  • SUSTAINABLE

    Developed using sustainable practices, having a relatively low environmental impact.

  • ETHICAL AND HUMANE

    Created in ways which uphold honorable ethical values, meeting or exceeding our standards for social responsibility and/or animal welfare.

  • ORGANIC OR NATURAL

    Composed of safe and quality, organic or natural ingredients.

  • LOCALLY SOURCED

    Made with locally sourced ingredients or materials.

  • GIVES BACK

    Sold by a company that donates to environmental or humanitarian causes.

GUIDE

We guide you towards greener choices in a way that is quick, simple and straightforward.

ASPIRE

We aspire to change the way people think about the items they buy.  We know it may be difficult, but we are up to the challenge.

#GREENERMOVEMENT

WHY WE DO IT

To put it simply, we do it because it’s the right and good thing to do.

THE FACE BEHIND THE SQUARE

Jake Madoff  |  Founder

Hello! I am an environmentalist and graduating senior at the Gallatin School at New York University.  I have studied ecology and biogeochemistry.  I’ve done research on environmental ethics, sustainable design and economics.  I am also a curiously passionate individual that likes making  people-healthy and planet-friendly things more accessible.  Greener Square is how I plan to do just that.

BRILLIANT & PASSIONATE TEAM
