April 20th, 2011—SAN DIEGO, CA- Thousands of activists and businesses are demanding change for a greener future. In addition to the companies that have left the US Chamber of Commerce, over 10,000 young voters rallied on Monday in front of the organization’s headquarters to fight back against its corporate politics that have been stalling solutions for a greener economy far too long. The US Green Chamber is taking the lead to make sure this call to action is heard.
To encourage these efforts, the US Green Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the“US Chamber Doesn’t Speak for Me Campaign,”a not-for-profit project under 350.org. Thousands of businesses are quickly signing up on behalf of a greener economic climate versus the continued support of big oil polluters and biased politics while the US Green Chamber focuses on embracing the strong correlation between economic growth and sustainability that will ultimately fuel recovery and job growth.
As more of a complement to the US Chamber of Commerce, rather than a replacement, the US Green Chamber is comprised of businesses committed to greener practices and strengthening the national movement for a greener tomorrow. The goal is to provide a new option for corporations who want to create change that will benefit not only the environment, but also encourage economic and social sustainability within their business and throughout the country.
As the outcry for a greener economy escalates in the Capitol, American business has developed a strong need for a new kind of representative organization, and the US Green Chamber has established itself as the voice for the environment. Be a part of the change by joining the US Green Chamber of Commerce and 350.org in this movement.
