$14 for One-Year Go Green Membership ($29 Value)
Membership gives holders access to an online marketplace of discounted products such as a 30-pack of allergy pills ($10.39 for members; $15 for nonmembers) and a non-toxic cleaner ($5.69 for members; $8.50 for nonmembers). Members who buy 35 points worth of products, about four to seven items, get a $20 credit each month for their first six months, beginning after the second month, totaling up to $100 in extra credits. The program director delivers memberships to clients’ doorsteps, and can stop in for an in-home consultation on the products best suited to member’s specific needs.
