Longbow announces the launch of GreenFtLauderdale.com, the third generation platform powering its green focused web communities.
The Community Greenhouse Foundation’s Green Communities program provides residents, organizations and businesses of the community a resource to discover, educate, promote and communicate the benefits of a “greener” community and life in South Florida. We’re excited to announce a partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale for the establishment of the first green city site, under our program.
GreenFtLauderdale.com provides a conduit to learn, educate, promote and communicate the benefits of a greener community. The goal of the site is to provide communities with the resources and information related to sustainable green living and a more sustainable future.
The site focuses on three main content channels: articles, directory and events. The articles section contains stories and profiles about people and organizations doing good things in the community. We promote the idea of being greener or living sustainably, by showing success stories–people making a difference. Articles are divided into major categories including, technology, sustainability, art, balance, ethics, faith, fitness, nature and teamwork– all which can influence the ability of a community to become more sustainable.
Our site provides a resource for the community to find organizations, city resources and businesses that differentiate themselves by being green and offering product and services that indeed make Ft Lauderdale a better place. The site offers the opportunity for businesses to support the efforts of Community Greenhouse Foundation. Sponsoring the site is a tax deductible donation.
GreenFtLauderdale launched on April 26, 2008 at the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Green Living Expo celebrating Earth day and Arbor day.
