The Green Families Club (GFC) was created with the goal to inspire younger generations to care about sustainability and value the environment. Its formation was a natural response of research and trends found by the Green Alliance about members.

Green Families merges the relationship between businesses and an active socially engaged local community with fun, educational events geared specifically toward families, and great discounts at local businesses. Its works to educate families and budget concerns, parents can still afford to make green-minded decisions that ensure the health and safety of both their family and the environment.

The Kittery Community Market is held each Sunday and aims to provide healthy, fresh foods, locally prepared foods, and work from local artisans to residents of Kittery and the surrounding area. The Green Alliance is proud to be a market sponsor and to be working with the Kittery Community Market throughout the season. The Green Alliance will be vending at many of the weekly markets during the summer and until the end of the market on October 4. To Sarah Brown and the Green Alliance staff it is important to partner with local organizations as much as possible and to spread awareness about the benefits of shopping local.

Both the Green Alliance and Kittery Community Market look forward to joining forces for the Green Families Celebration to bring a family focus to the weekly market. Visitors can anticipate new vendors including Green Alliance Business Partners the Natural Dog, Gundalow Company, and Green Cocoon, in addition to the weekly local vendors.
