About us

Green Infomation has been sponsored and developed by Design Advantage who are a Graphic and Web Design business for environmentally aware businesses and charities.

Design Advantage are based near Canterbury in Kent and have clients based in the London and the South.

After wading through a mire of information to find out about some eco windows - we wanted to create a one-stop shop and research facility for 'everything green.' No small task - so please feel free to help us out by submitting articles and reviews (see contact for details). Our keen interest in environmental issues and ethical practices needs to be vented!

We are aware there are lots of 'green' resource websites out there, but they mainly fall in two camps... they are either 'specialist' in their field, or they are simply a 'list of links'.  We are aiming for something in between, and will include links to those other sites if you need more information.

We hope you will find Green Information a useful resource (when we have populated it some more!). We would appreciate it if you would tell other people about the site and maybe link to it from your site, forum or blog. 

As we are trying to cover hosting and development costs with affiliate programes, hopefully you will think of us when you need to purchase something from Amazon or others (if you don't especially want a "green" book you can enter the Amazon.co.uk site by clicking on the logo on the shops page) 


Green Information will donate 10% of any money received to charity.

The first £10 will pay for a wardens salary for a week to look after elephants via: http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcwildlifefund/


Contributing authors

We have had a number of contributing authors so far (many thanks to them).  Most recently we were delighted to work with a great bunch of young ladies from the Simon Langton Grammer Girls School in Canterbury who spent a week researching and writing articles for the site on work experience.  They chose subjects that interested them and as you can see from the articles their interests are wide and varied.

So many thanks to: Theresa Bates, Jenna Brown, Elena Isolini, Annie Lee, April Lyons, Sam McKinven, Emily Mitchell, Iszi Taylor, Emily Thomas, Annabelle Topliss and Anna Young and we wish them all well in their future studies and chosen careers.

Affiliate sites

Your online shopping can support the Green Information website including updates and hosting.

Green Information has agreements with independent online retailers that enable visitors to the site to purchase environmentally friendly items  mentioned on Green Information through third party sites. A small portion of that revenue is designated to Green Information.

Purchases made through these third party sites are subject to the policies and procedures of those sites. Order fulfillment and customer service relating to orders placed at any of those third party sites, including the collection of applicable sales taxes, are the sole responsibility of such sites. Any concerns regarding order fulfillment, customer service, privacy policies or other issues relating to these third party online retail sites should be directed to the Webmaster or site administrator of the site.

How do these relationships work?
Green Information has agreements with multiple online retailers to offer a wider variety of merchandise through links on our site. Purchases made through these links result in a portion of your total purchase being given to Green Information, called a revenue share. These funds are used to support the Green Information website with 10% of all revenue going to charities. Green Information only receives this money if you shop through one of the links on www.greeninformation.co.uk. Once you've entered the third party site, Green Information receives a revenue share from all products you purchase during that visit.

Why shop through Green Information?
The links provided on Green Information  are specially coded to designate you as a Green Information visitor. This is the only way to ensure that your purchase goes to supporting this website.  You are not charged any extra by purchasing your items through our website.

What happens to my personal information?
When shopping at one of the third party retail sites with which Green Information has a relationship, you are subject to that site's privacy and security policies.

Do all links to products on Green Information link to an affiliate site?
No we only link to relevant products whether they are on affiliate sites or not.  We would be putting this information on the site anyway so would like to take the opportunity of trying to raise a little cash to further develop and maintain the site.  We are going to try and work through the various pages to indicate which products are on affiliate sites so you can help support our work if you wish.




We have recently added a comments box at the bottom of each article.  If you have anything you would like to add or even if you disagree with what is being said please add your comments.
