Being green in Brighton and Hove easier than ever

Being green in Brighton and Hove is about to get easier with the launch of the third edition of the Green Pages, which will be the biggest yet.

Household expenditure on ethical goods and services has almost doubled in the last five years, and overall the ethical market in the UK is worth £32.3 billion a year. But how can people sort the good from the greenwash?

The Green Pages is a directory of green businesses and organisations – like the Yellow Pages, but green. With over 300 organisations listed, this year's edition provides a comprehensive guide to local environmental and ethical services, enabling everyone to make informed choices about where they spend their money, from planning a wedding to buying a printer cartridge.

The Green Pages is published by Brighton Peace and Environment Centre and sponsored by PR company Green Rocket.

Award-winning environmental journalist and editor of the Green Pages, Sarah Lewis, says: "The response we've had has been extraordinary. I've written about environmental issues in Brighton and Hove for many years and thought I knew pretty much everyone, but new businesses have been popping up all over the place. It's great news for the Green Pages, obviously, and even better news for the planet.”

Aisha Hannibal, coordinator of Brighton Peace and Environment Centre, which runs the project, says: “The Green Pages is a great way of putting all the information you need in one place to help you make all those practical choices – it's about making the connections between the way we live and all the big issues we face. It is really important for the Brighton Peace and Environment Centre to be able to support ethical businesses, and we also want to make it easier for people to make informed choices about what they buy and how they live.”

Green Pages will be at the Ralli Hall farmers' market on Sunday 7 December from 10am – 2pm to mark its launch with mulled wine and eco-treats galore.

The 2009 Green Pages will be available from over 300 outlets across the city and for the first time all the listings are also online at www.brightongreenpages.org
