This report should spur us to inform our customers and prospects about our own environmentally responsible corporate policies and practices, and underscore how we, along with companies in our industry, are striving to make financially and environmentally sound decisions.

Is it “Green Marketing” or is it “Marketing Green”?
In the larger scheme of things, marketing is set of activities, functions, and processes for creating and communicating products and services that deliver value for customers, clients, and partners. Unfortunately, for many companies, “green marketing” has become a label that describes the way they tout their sustainability efforts and flaunt the responsibility of their products and practices. Perhaps we should consider using the term “marketing green” to more realistically describe how marketing practices are applied to not only improving the environmental and social performance of products and services, but also to ... market research, surveys and trends
Is It Really Possible To Green Direct Mail? | Twist of Lime
and they have introduced a few ways to help lighten the carbon footprint of those who insist upon using direct mail for marketing purposes. Don’t get me wrong, I too agree that direct mail is an effective way to reach potential customers, and I encourage my clients to use it in select circumstances. But, like others quoted in the Times article, I’m a bit skeptical of the effectiveness of the Green Marketing Coalition’s efforts. You can download a copy of their “Recommended Guidelines” at their site and see what I mean. Among the recommendations they list: Purchase recycled paper. Choose vendors and ... market research, surveys and trends


The Direct Marketing Voice
Last week the U.S. Postal Service requested a 2-cent increase of first-class postage as part of a plan to cover some of their staggering deficit. Many business groups that rely heavily on using direct mail for advertising reacted in outrage . However, in response to the news, author, Daniel Gross , wrote a smart article arguing that this move could urge businesses to think of more efficient and cost-effective ways of reaching prospects and consumers—an activity that could benefit the economy, environment, businesses and consumers alike. “So rather than complain about the rising cost, power mail users should do what ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Advertising - Direct Mail Tries to Go Green. No, Really. -
MOST marketers readily concede it: getting rid of direct mail — or junk mail, as environmentalists and most recipients call it — would save a lot of trees. But they are not about to render bulk mailings obsolete. “The return on investment is just too high,” said Jeffrey Horton, marketing supervisor for Kawasaki Motors Corporation U.S.A. So a group of direct-marketing companies, along with a handful of their corporate clients, are banding together to make an inherently unsustainable practice at least a little bit greener. The group calls itself the Green Marketing Coalition, and it includes Microsoft , ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

A Ways & Means Committee spokesperson said that a reduction of the tax credit from 45 cents to 36 cents per gallon was among ideas the panel was considering for a green-energy bill. The subsidy would be extended through next year. A draft of the bill could be released in the next few days, committee spokesperson Matt Beck told the newspaper.
