Client Origin Story - GreenFinder

31st Jan 2024

This Client Origin story is about a company that goes back a long way with us to the early 2000's. GreenFinder's founder Kate and I (Vic) were co-editors on a popular environmental blog and found support in each other and fellow entrepreneurs who were running ethical businesses, in a relatively new movement of putting people and planet before profit. Now GreenFinder has new owners. Libby and Lucy, over to you...

Libby and Lucy from GreenFinder stood outdoors and smiling into the cameraHi, we are Libby & Lucy, the owners of GreenFinder, an online green directory. We took ownership three years ago from the founder Kate Haines. Here's our experience of running our own sustainable business...

As former primary school teachers we met several years ago whilst working on joint projects at Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum. It all started with a dog walk… Lucy met up with Kate and learnt that GreenFinder was for sale! Kate was keen to pursue and develop her passion for teaching outdoors and Lucy was keen to gain new skills. We officially took over in March 2021.

GreenFinder is an online directory, listing ethical companies and green products, which we also promote through our social media, newsletter feature, advertisements and competitions. We publish regular articles about sustainable business and lifestyle too.

Becoming the new owners of GreenFinder was a baptism of fire but we have acquired a whole new skill set and an incredible amount of knowledge. The company allows us to work flexibly; walk our dogs, scour charity shops and encourage recycling and reusing.

We are proud to support and promote some wonderful businesses; including Make Hay & Green Hosting who host our website.

Please take a look at our site and if you are a green & ethical company then contact us at [email protected] we would love to add you to our directory!
