The purpose of TheGreenSpectrum.net is to chronicle our journey to a more compassionate and eco-friendly lifestyle. This journey is ever changing as new information becomes available to us. This blog reflects our opinions and doesn’t reflect the opinions of any organizations we may be affiliated with. Any information on this blog is accurate and true to the best of our knowledge, but there may be omissions, errors or mistakes that we will do our best to rectify in a timely manner. The information present on this blog is for entertainment and/or informational purposes only and shouldn’t be seen as any kind of professional advice. We reserve the right to change how we manage or run this blog at any time.


Some of the links on this site may include affiliate links. Please note that we only promote products and services that we actually use and love. All opinions are our own and readers are reminded to practice their own judgment.

Our aim is to provide you with reliable and eco-friendly alternatives to products that are necessary for day to day living. We do not want you to purchase any products we recommend without first considering their place in your life. Our needs may be different than yours, and something that we use and love may be completely unnecessary to you. Please keep this in mind when making any purchase on our website or otherwise.

In hopes of being as transparent with our readers as possible we’d like you to know that any money made from this website will be put right back into it. We will first focus on compensating friends and family who have so generously donated their time and energy to do design and editing work for us and will eventually pay ourselves back for the money it took to get this site up and running. We will use additional money made to pay for services necessary to expand the reach of our website such as, but not limited to, email marketing, paid advertisements, editing software, and other marketing tools. Our goal is to make a zero waste and vegan lifestyle more accessible, understandable, and feasible for our readers. Eventually, we’d love to have more time to dedicate to this blog which would be made possible by earning an income. When that time comes, we will let you know. In the meantime, we are so incredibly grateful for your support.
