Chicago Limo Service Supports Local Green Companies
Going Green Limousine, the eco limo company of Chicago, is proud to support local sustainability. As a member of A Fresh Squeeze and a sponsor of Chicago Gateway Green, Going Green Limousine sees real growth happening in the green movement.

As the premiere eco limo car service in Chicago, Going Green Limousine believes that local sustainability is an important part of going green. In addition to helping the environment with a fleet of hybrids to reduce the carbon footprint for Chicago airport transportation and charters in and around Chicago, they also support local green companies.
As one of the first merchant members of A Fresh Squeeze, Rebecca Schmuck of Going Green Limousine says, “It’s great to see how much the local green merchant directory has grown in just the last several months. All of our clients who are members of A Fresh Squeeze are very happy to be a part of it by supporting local merchants and getting rewarded for going green as well.”
Most green merchants are small mom and pop shops and it’s hard to find them even when you are looking, so by having a one stop source for all local green merchants it makes it very easy to support local sustainability. You may start out looking for eco paint only to discover there is a cradle to cradle eco clothing store in town. Money saving opportunities are available in a wide range of categories, from eco magazines all the way to eco architecture, and of course green car service. It’s a great way to discover lots of great little places and people who are going green in Chicago. Visit http://www.afreshsqueeze.com to see the green Chicago directory.
Another way Going Green Limousine is supporting the local community is through their planned donations to Chicago Gateway Green. Last year Going Green Limousine donated to the rain forests, which they still believe to be a very worthy cause. However, this year they have decided to focus their attention closer to their Chicago home and concentrate on local environmental causes. Although their eco optimized hybrids can reduce emissions by more than 80% to reduce their carbon footprint, this Chicago limo company also offsets the carbon footprint of their less eco friendly limos such as stretch limos by donating a portion of the proceeds for those rentals to local causes such as Chicago Gateway Green.

In a day when it’s easy to simply shop online or drive up to a large retail chain, it’s nice to know that more and more people are making the conscious choice to go green. Joining A Fresh Squeeze has given Going Green Limousine the opportunity to find Chicago green merchants that may have otherwise gone unrecognized;
