 Did you know...

* Even while the overall construction industry was contracting 17 percent, the green building sector skyrocketed 1700 percent from 2006-2011

* The organic food market jumped 238 percent, while sales of non-food organic jumped 400 percenτ

* Walmart alone opened up a $15.44 billion/year market, selling organic food to people who mostly don't go to natural foods stores

* From 2002-2011, renewable energy use increased 456 percent

* Western Europeans typically use about half the energy per capita as people in the United States, and their per capita carbon output ranges from 1/3 (France) to 1/2 (IK) the US; thus, Americans can easily slash their carbon footprint and energy consumption without any significant effect on lifestyle

For your business readers, this means they need to embrace green in both marketing and operations, or they will be left behind

--> Green and Profitable Column Helps Those Readers Succeed in the Rapidly Growing Green Marketplace

Running monthly since 2010, the monthly column, "Green and Profitable," by multiple-award-winning author Shel Horowitz, provides concrete help for business owners seeking success with green products and services. The Green And Profitable column gives your business readers an edge in profitable marketing and operations.

Trained as a journalist, Horowitz provides 600-800 words of well-written clean copy every month, on time and ready to run in your publication.

Using how-tos, case studies of success, and news/trend pieces, "Green and Profitable" demonstrates that...

* Green and ethical businesses can turn their commitments into marketing advantages--using the full array of outreach techniques

* Green practices can actually be cheaper than continuing to pollute

* Green companies are better placed to survive in today's cultural climate

--> How to Run the Green And Profitable Column (or the Consumer Column, Green And Practical):

The column is available at a cost of just $6.25 (two-year subscription to Green And Profitable and its sister column for consumers, Green and Practical) to $10 (one-year subscription to just one column) per insertion.
