The National Capital Green Pages is now accepting submissions for our print directory for 2012.
The National Capital Green Pages is a regional print and online directory containing listings of local products, services, businesses and organizations of Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. This directory is designed to celebrate and support the many sustainable groups and businesses in the National Capital Region and to connect the public with eco-friendly options in their community.
The Green Pages were initially a print directory published by Seventh Generation Community Projects and available at community fairs and events. It has evolved over the years as a collaborative project that includes a print and online edition put together by Tucker House Renewal Centre, the Peace and Environment Resource Centre, and hosted online by Sustainable Eastern Ontario.
