There’s a Green Zebra in town

Before moving here, I had contacted the writer of the Green Apple Guide, stating an interesting in making a version of the book for San Francisco. She thought that it was a great idea, but it was one of the many that fell to the side during the past six months. I was elated to find at the Green Festival that someone had already been following through on the same general idea.

The 2007 Green Zebra guide makes it fun and easy to explore the best of natural living in San Francisco. Whether you’ve been bringing your own shopping bag to the market for years or have only recently become concerned about the environment and your family’s future, this new annual guide is for you. With over 250 exclusive offers from organic restaurants and markets, eco-friendly retailers, spas, Yoga and Pilates studios, independent bookstores, bike shops, museums and more, there’s something for everyone to discover. The guide benefits both you and the community by providing over $12,000 in savings that encourage you to support local businesses. Many Green Zebra passes will save you more than the guide’s $25 purchase price in a single visit.

Green Zebra also answers many of your questions about living green in the city. Searching for a nearby Farmers’ Market? Not sure where to dispose of batteries and light bulbs? Wondering what Fair Trade really means? You’ll find the answers and more in this handy compact guide. Looking for further ideas and inspiration? Check out Green Zebra’s 20 action steps to find simple things you and your family can start doing today for a greener tomorrow.

    this is a great idea! are these free? is there anyway they could be mass distributed to locals so we can make sf even cleaner and greener?

    eek, nevermind. $25 seems a little steep for something that seems like it would be free anyway.

    It contains a lot of vouchers and coupons of higher-than-normal value (e.g. $20 off a purcahse at Rainbow Grocery). That’s the reason to buy it.

    I’m with you Hank – I bought a copy right when I saw it at the Green Fest and it has more than paid for itself already with just two purchases.
