List of Green/Eco-Friendly SMBs, Suppliers, and Products

For SMBs trying to "go green" i imagine they would need green suppliers for common office products on top of green practices of going digital, using fluorescent lighting etc..

I am trying to compile a green list for these SMBs and SMBs themselves which provide green services to other businesses.
