Blog : Green Alliance Membership Makes Local Paper More Affordable
A Green Alliance Green Card is the perfect date—you can take it to any of nearly one hundred places, and it pays for itself! How long does it take for the money you spend on your Green Alliance membership to come back to you? Sometimes only one purchase.
Green Card holders can save up to 30 percent off yearly subscriptions to the Portsmouth Herald—as much as 45 dollars. And a Green Card only costs $35. Green Alliance Director and cardholder Sarah Brown recently renewed her yearly home delivery subscription to the Portsmouth Herald, and what would have cost her $233.40 cost only $196.30 with the help of her Green Alliance membership card.
“Of course being the Director of the Green Alliance, I am always singing the praises of the GreenCard but I personally reaped the benefits last week when I went to renew my daily home delivery subscription of the Herald. I was pretty excited with how much I saved! I love getting the local paper but it is costly to have home delivery; my GreenCard made it more affordable!” exclaimed Brown.
The Portsmouth Herald is excited about the deal as well—through its partnership with the Green Alliance, the Herald is able to attract subscribers who might otherwise get their news elsewhere. These readers are drawn to the Portsmouth Herald because of the paper's commitment to issues of sustainability. It's a symbiotic relationship.
Customers concerned with sustainability want to patronize companies who share their concern; and local businesses who put effort into green company ethics need to have a fighting chance against national corporations who sacrifice ethics to lure the masses with cheap products. That's why the Green Alliance is vital. The GA connects green consumers with green businesses, allowing customers to align their choices with their values and save money at the same time. In turn, the extra business that companies receive through Green Alliance promotions allows these businesses to continue reducing their environmental impact and giving back to the community through sustainability education and charitable donations.
Many of us, both individuals and businesses, already want to do the right thing. The Green Alliance's work of telling the stories of sustainability, educating the community, connecting people and businesses, and of making green choices feasible and desirable for both, is key in the path toward a greener future.
