Top 10 Bio-Sensitive Companies on Net

This list is the REAL DEAL in terms of a business caring about the planet.

We were looking for businesses that weren't duped by things like stripping trees away to plant organic crops or carbon neutral energy plants that end up burning trees as a source of energy or reforestation promises whereby someone who is a major polluter and "buys" a program to plant trees 80% of which are never planted.

NO, we were interested in businesses that inconvenience themselves immediately in order to take measures to lessen their carbon print, and who make decisions every day to sell products or services that directly lessen man's carbon print.

In other words, there are businesses who attempt to buy good will by using terms such as organic or carbon neutral or reforestation offsets for abusive practices. OR businesses who sell credits to bio abusers who pay cash so that they can continue to abuse the planet. None of that.

We were after businesses who do it themselves immediately, no buying anything off or offsetting or putting off or any of the other fancy terms used to fool the public with GREEN labels on products that rarely if ever mean what they say.

So here they are, and our reasoning for each.
The Top Ten
1 ToysPeriod

This business has won Green awards, it's true. However, that's not enough for our fabulous 50 evaluators, so we contacted the business. We had seen an article stating that this business is particularly GREEN. Here is what we found:

1. ToysPeriod primarily operates in the collectibles business. Every day, the company has to decide whether to purchase new products and hold them until they increase in value, or go through the hassle of buying older toys and rejuvenating them in hopes of finding a market. Ninety-five percent of the time, ToysPeriod chooses to recycle toys. They reclaim them from attics and playrooms around the world and lovingly restore them.

But it doesn't end there.

1. Recycling toys is more complex than it may seem. Collectors are very particular about the condition of their collections. The toys must appear new, even if they are several decades old. This necessitates restoration and multiple washings, often using processes similar to those used in cleaning jewelry. All soaps and other cleaners used by ToysPeriod are 100% biodegradable.

And it doesn't end there.

1. Packaging is another concern. When an item is shipped, the company uses a large amount of packaging material. As you might have guessed, 100% of all packaging used by ToysPeriod is biodegradable, even though these materials are considerably more expensive.

And it doesn't end there.

1. ToysPeriod does not sell its products from a physical location, so customers can't drive to their location to make purchases. This is intentional. From the comfort of their homes, loyal ToysPeriod customers place their orders and then sit back to await the clean, mint-condition additions to their collections.

It almost goes without saying that ToysPeriod is a 100% green business. They are our choice for the #1 spot.

2 Cartridge World

Cartridge World positively impacts our planet by keeping almost 9 million ink and laser printer cartridges out of landfills this year. Rather than throwing their ink and laser printer cartridges away and paying full price for a new one, we empower our customers by giving them the choice to recycle their ink and laser printer cartridges at about half the cost.

3 Nutrilawn

Nutri-Lawn is dedicated to creating beautiful, healthy lawns while minimizing or even eliminating the use of pesticides and other chemicals. Their ecologically friendly approach to lawn and soil care promotes healthy, green lawns through the use of organic or all-natural products.

4 Repid Recovery

Green isn't new, but it is a white-hot business segment! Many companies produce green products or claim to be green companies because they use recycled napkins or fluorescent light bulbs. Rapid Recovery franchisees are the real deal, situated right in the center of the environmental movement.

Every year, Rapid Recovery collects millions of pounds of ozone-depleting CO2 equivalents through the proper recovery of coolants used in everything from industrial chillers to residential and commercial HVAC units, refrigerators, transformers, and vending machines.

5 Complete-Entertainment-Exchange

There are always people, wherever you are in the world, who must have the newest, latest, and most up-to-date products. These people love to upgrade and must find a place to dispose of "last week's" model. Most of us, however, are content with "last week's" model, and if we can pay less by purchasing a slightly used item that comes with a 12-month warranty, we are more than happy. One man's trash is another man's treasure. Complete Entertainment Exchange ranks high on our list as a green business.

6 Pro-Energy-Consultants

This is the fastest-growing company in the US dealing with conducting audits of homes to reduce energy consumption.

While many green decisions, like solar installations and renewable energy options, represent significant investments and long ROIs, having an energy audit performed on your home, often for just a few hundred dollars, is a practical and meaningful first "green" step. This will almost always result in a more energy-efficient home and lower utility bills.

7 US Energy Solutions

US Energy Solutions offers energy-efficient solutions that result in proven cost savings, reduced energy consumption, and a smaller carbon footprint. The company provides these solutions, some of which are proprietary, to customers across various industries and specializes in several vertical markets.

What Pro Energy does for homeowners, US Energy Solutions does for businesses. They consult with companies to evaluate opportunities for investing in projects that provide significant energy savings. These projects have attractive payback timeframes and are self-financing through the energy savings they generate.

8 Junk King

There is a fast-growing demand for affordably priced junk removal. In today's economy, more people are opting to improve their homes and make the most of their existing space rather than moving to larger properties. Everyone accumulates clutter and unwanted items, but few have the time or ability to dispose of them properly. Junk King enables people to make environmentally positive decisions.


Once all the "low-hanging fruit" of energy savings has been picked by others, EASI picks up where everyone else leaves off. Energy Automation is a global electrical design, contracting, and manufacturing firm specializing in electrical efficiency. Simply put, they reduce the electricity bills for their clients. They are a deeply skilled and hardworking company.

10 All About Kids

All About Kids has become the regional leader in green building construction and operations within the childcare industry. Their standard building is designed with energy-efficient systems and environmentally sensitive materials. Operations and maintenance protocols are guided by green principles, including healthy indoor air, proper building maintenance, and water and energy efficiency.
