A Brief Blog Profile: The Green Economy Post

by Thomas Hynes


The Green Economy Post is among the most thorough blogs I've read. And really, they're more than a blog. They're a resource. The fact is industries are changing. The way people do business is transitioning. These days, environmental impacts are considered alongside profit margins. It's becoming clear that corporate practices need to be responsible. For one, it's good for the brand, but more importantly, a sustainable business is one that can continue to make money. Green business, therefore, is really in everyone's interest.

And, as mentioned above, The Green Economy Post is a thorough blog. They cover a lot of bases. They talk about the business side of things, where you can read about the top women in biofuels or about how far away the U.S. is from having a more integrated solar policy.  They also talk about the environmental side of things, where you can read about the dirty truth behind recyclable plastics or what happens when cities and wetlands collide. And they even take a more personal side, where you can read about the best green building material qualities to consider or this post examining the carbon footprint of marijuana.

Like I said, there's a lot on here. The blog even posts about job opportunities and events. And none of this should come as a surprise. If businesses plan to excel in the coming years, they are going to have to go green. And if you want to read about any of them, this blog is a great place to start.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
