Local company Miss Malaprop is thrilled to announce it has been awarded the Green America Business Seal of Approval. The seal is presented to businesses that go beyond product and service quality to set the highest standards in environmental sustainability and social justice, and work to solve, rather than create, environmental and social problems.
To be considered for the Seal of Approval and earn a listing in the annual National Green Pages™, businesses complete a rigorous screening process to ensure they meet Green America’s standards for the environment, community and labor.
Miss Malaprop began as a blog in 2006, showcasing the best in handmade and eco-friendly products, as well as highlighting work by artists throughout the Gulf South region. Owner and founder Mallory Whitfield expanded Miss Malaprop’s offerings in 2009, by selling carefully curated, handmade work by other artists at events throughout the greater New Orleans area. In March 2010 an online storefront was launched, and the offerings of handmade and eco-friendly products have continued to expand. Ms. Whitfield is currently working towards creating a full retail storefront for handmade goods in New Orleans.
“I’m so excited and proud to have finally received the coveted Seal of Approval!” said Ms. Whitfield. “They put you through a very thorough screening process, and they kept coming back with additional questions to make sure I am doing my very best to be as environmentally friendly as possible. I’m also proud to now be one of only 3 Green America approved businesses in the state of Louisiana! And one of the other businesses, Paper NOLA, is a local company whose recycled handmade greeting cards I already offer in my shop.”
Miss Malaprop is now an Approved member of the Green Business Network, a distinguished and celebrated group of companies that use their products and services as a vehicle for social and environmental change.
