A global network of individuals, businesses and organizations working together and giving back in a sustainable way for the betterment of each other, our communities and the world.
GreenAngels supports “making a difference while making a dollar” and the triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. We help people match their interests to their values by connecting them to organizations and companies that are making a responsible contribution to the environment and humanity.
Our work is guided by our principles and commitment to:
- Inclusiveness: we respect diversity and welcome all people of all cultures in all parts of the world
- Responsibility: both socially and environmentally in everything we do
- Participation: we value and recognize the contribution of all organizations and volunteers who work every day to make our world a better place
- Quality: we strive for excellence by continually updating and adding quality content
- Openness: we are committed to a culture of collaboration and transparency
What is our goal with this platform?
The GreenAngels Platform aims at simplifying your search for organizations that suit your interests and are dedicated to making a responsible contribution to the environment and humanity, because we, ourselves, have found it difficult sorting through all the information out there.
There are so many great organizations! So many good causes! The question has always been how to go about selecting the ones that fit with your passion, how to make sure you’re actually finding the majority and not missing those that might not have a great Google search engine ranking, because, so far, they’ve focused on their important work and not necessarily on their Online Marketing.
This is where we want to make a difference. We want to help you filter through and find the ones that speak to your heart, the causes that are working towards a healthier planet or correcting social injustices. We already have a good number of organizations represented on this platform, but we don’t want to stop here. Our goal is to grow our database continuously to give organizations and socially responsible companies, big or small, a platform to share their contribution to people and planet.
Why have we put effort and resources into this?
The answer is simple. We realized that getting people together with organizations that do good work can be a very valuable contribution to making the world a better place.
Who founded GreenAngels?
We, the founders, are Ina Timmer and Dave Howe. We grew up in a small rural town on Vancouver Island, surrounded by natural beauty, fresh air, plentiful water and the ocean at the doorstep. That's a pretty good way to grow up. Easy to live an uncomplicated, simple life. Neither rich nor poor, but always having enough. Easy not to think about anything but our own comfortable universe.
We believe this is a right all children should have. And it was this wish or belief that marked the beginning of GreenAngels and our goal to work towards a triple bottom line economy. An economy where profit is still important to grow a business but not important enough to do so at the expense of people and the environment.
Via this website, we present these companies and share our adventures and experiences. We feature good companies doing good things for the planet and good people changing lives for the better and provide opportunities where you can make an impact, whether you volunteer, donate or invest. And most importantly we'll feature your stories about organizations that you feel strongly about.
This is how we attempt to make a small difference. If you feel the same way, go ahead, browse these companies and organizations, and learn about how we can all contribute and make a positive difference.
We invite you to become a member of this platform. It's free, but by generously giving us your email address, you give us the opportunity to reach out to you and others and spread the word about those organizations, companies and people who already do their share and more to make the world a better place for generations to come.
With the free membership you will be able to add your own organization or simply to organize your search and identify the ones you feel most drawn to in your own customized list.
