Blog : Get Ready for the Holidays with a GA Membership, Get Your House Cleaned by Green Maids!

By Katie | Dec 8, 2014 | in

Since its foundation in 2009 the Green Alliance has steadily increased its membership base and has reached more than 3,800 members. We have discovered that all of our members are unique in their reasoning for being part of the Green Alliance, where they shop most often, and how frequently they use their Green Cards. Despite the differences among our members there are underlying similarities: our members care about the community and shopping local, and enjoy receiving special discounts with these retailers.

A membership to the Green Alliance is a great addition to any Seacoast shopper’s wallet as it includes not only discounts at 100+ local and sustainable businesses, but also exclusive access to member only gatherings and events. In fact, the Green Alliance Holiday Bash is Tuesday, December 23 from 5:30 - 8 p.m. at the Portsmouth Brewery and is free for all members (space is limited, so RSVP to today with your membership number or after you join for only $25).

This holiday season, we invite you to treat yourself. We know the holidays are all about gathering with loved ones, and exchanging gifts. In the midst of prepping the house, shopping for everyone on your list, and all the chaos that comes with the holidays, it’s easy to forget about yourself. With the GA, you don’t have to. Buy a membership for yourself this season for only $25, and enjoy great discounts at local businesses. Some businesses may even help mitigate some of that holiday-induced-stress. 

If you are playing host for this years merriment, you have enough on your plate. Why not get some help cleaning the house before your guests arrive? Card holders receive discounts with Green Maids, who offer a 10% discount to members on all cleaning services. Green Maids works in the Seacoast area and provides residential and commercial cleaning services while using eco-friendly products and methods. Peggy Naumes has been a member of the Green Alliance since the summer of 2010, and Green Maids has become one of her family’s favorite Business Partners. She explains that the company always leaves her home “feeling fresh and clean without the artificial smells of other cleaning products.” Green Maids also strives to listen to their customers and Peggy believes this is a key quality in a cleaning company, she states that “they listen to us about the small things we'd like done - our previous cleaning service had a way that they would do things, despite repeated requests.”

Peggy and husband, William, have been so thrilled with Green Maids and other GA Businesses, that they recently made the jump to a Sustaining Membership, ensuring them a lifetime of discounts with the businesses they love. If you’re not ready to take the plunge to the lifetime membership, why not start out with the $25 holiday membership? This offer will only be good through the end of December, so get yours today. 

If you're looking to get the perfect, unique gift this season, we can help. How about a custom wall-decal from Riverworks printing for only $25 (regularly $40)? Or maybe some custom jewelry for the girls? Is a family member expecting? Give the gift of eco-friendly diaper service, with door-to-door service, discounted up to 15% to GA Members. Maybe you just want a night out at a local, sustainable restaurant… the GA Green Card will afford you discounts with Riverworks PrintingPreludeGreen Earth Baby Works, and several restaurants, including 900 Degrees and UNH Dairy Barwho are both giving away Honest Tea’s to GA Members who use their cards (in conjunction with the 10% off you’ll receive at both restaurants).
