Most of our products are delivered next-day and FREE of charge by a team of professionals with a passion for customer service.

Our Story

We were established in 2005 by founder and CEO Alex Szabo, a former sustainability consultant and educator who had experienced first-hand the need for a single source of environmentally and socially responsible office products and services. Mr. Szabo’s vision was of a workplace run exclusively on green products and driven by sustainable practice. Every day, we empower consumers to align values with action by providing easy and affordable access to office greening essentials. In every sphere of operation we strive to model sustainable business by maximizing the social, ecological, and financial performance of our company – what is known as the triple-bottom-line.

A History of Firsts

Our goal is to challenge industry and workplaces alike to do it greener. In our relatively short history we have taken leadership positions on a variety of workplace sustainability matters, including:

  • The first company to offer a full selection of dark green, green, and conventional products under one virtual roof
  • The first company to label and rank a 60,000+ product catalog by greenness
  • The first one-stop-solution to remove all items containing PVC / vinyl
  • The first company to develop a comprehensive Office Footprint Calculator™
  • A member of the first cohort of certified San Francisco Bay Area Green Businesses
  • One of the first (if not the first) California corporation to amend its articles of incorporation to include sustainability principles
  • A Founding member of B Corporation
