PORTSMOUTH — The Green Alliance (GA) was launched in 2009 to bring green-minded businesses and consumers together, thereby helping prove the efficacy of sustainable products and services while supporting the local economy.

To date, that overarching mission has helped the GA grow from a handful of local businesses -- Simply Green Biofuels and Purely Organic Lawncare, specifically -- into a union of over 100 companies of every shape and size, and from across industries and sectors. Propelled by this green critical mass, the Portsmouth organization is poised to launch its latest initiative -- the Green Families Club (GFC) -- on July 25 with a celebration and picnic that is free and open to the public.

Designed to serve as a clearinghouse for consumer education and family-friendly local events, the GFC will allow area families an opportunity to meet and network with like-minded folks who share the common goal of going green, while saving a little at the same time.
