Green Spaces New York, space for social entrepreneurs and green business ventures, officially opened their new location in downtown Manhattan last week. Green Spaces is an incubator model that encourages like-minded entrepreneurs to pool resources and ideas to ensure success of their sustainable business ideas.

Green Spaces offers various amenities for your start-up needs. A rental ranges in price from $550 a month for a full-time private space to $35 per day for drop-ins sharing an open work area. Services include a conference room, an intern program, newsletter advertising and recommendations for companies that provide bookkeeping, accounting, marketing, graphic design, and technology and sustainability consulting assistance.

The Clubhouse Membership for EcoPreneurs is also offered. This membership includes access to networking events, film screenings, gallery openings, supper clubs, pop-up retail shops, happy hours, educational workshops, and entry pass to the national Green Spaces community.

Green Spaces is located in the ultra-hip Tribeca area and its vast 5,300-square-foot loft is truly Green as its name implies. It is refurbished with entirely vintage and reused furniture. The office uses 100% wind power energy. Green Spaces has low-power utilization through a passive heating and cooling system, and is implementing a composting system and partnership with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).

As a welcome offer for its new community into their Manhattan space, Green Spaces is offering a FREE One Day pass for individuals interested in a green working space.

To schedule a tour, utilize your FREE One Day Pass, or for more information on membership levels, contact Emma Grady at emma@greenspacesny.com.

    comScore recently announced a milestone: 3 millionth tree was planted as part of its “Trees for Knowledge” panelist recruitment program. (link to http://blog.comscore.com/2012/04/comscore_plants_3_millionth_tree_as_part_of_trees.html)comScore introduced this program in 2008 in partnership with the non-profit organization Trees for the Future. For every qualified participant (link to http://www.relevantknowledge.com/AboutTrees.aspx) in research panels such as RelevantKnowledge, the organization plants a tree in a developing community in Central America, Africa, or Asia. This is a good example where a simple action of an individual online can translate into meaningful results all over the world.
