Marketing for Green and Socially Responsible businesses just makes sense ( In today's environment, transparency, accountability and stewardship mean everything. It is becoming more and more difficult to hide behind poor business practices, cheap products and shoddy services. A listing on Sustainable Greenville means you actually believe in more than the bottom line of profits. It is equally important to believe in people and planet.

The local businesses on this website range from novices in practicing sustainability to sustainable pros. It always pays to do a little extra research. If they are listed here, you are guaranteed they are at least supporting sustainable principles to some degree.

Its component parts are relationships between parents & children, brothers & sisters, neighbors & friends. In 1986, Patricia and Alan Lightweis moved to Seneca, SC from New Jersey with their four children. Within three years, they had founded a bookstore designed to feed their children's burgeoning curiosity, which soon managed to sustain a community's intellectual and artistic interests. By the end of their first decade in business, the Lightweises doubled the square footage of the Booksmith, adding a contract post office, cafe, and gift shop to the already significant offerings that the store provided its customers. Over time, the Booksmith has grown not only in size, but in stature and function. More than a site of commerce, it is a place to gather and create community.
