New Direct Sales Party - emagineGreen

I recently read in the magazine Woman's Day about a new Direct Sales company called emagineGreen. This company was started by a woman named Tonya Ensign in Arizona. Tonya wanted to make her own life more "green" by recycling and saving energy and she wanted to share this info with friends. She has started a Direct Sales company with trained "greenCoaches" who give people strategies on how to live a more green life at Home Parties called "eco-parties."

Everyone seems to be jumping on the "going green" bandwagon these days. However, knowing how Direct Sales companies work, this concept seems a bit odd to me. There is a lot of waste created by Direct Sales companies; between the catalogs, paperwork, people driving to and from parties, Consultants delivering products, etc. etc. I'm all for people recycling and saving the environment, but do people really need to go to a Direct Sales party to learn about these things?

Would you go to an eco-party?

emagineGreen does everything online - orders, etc. No paperwork. They also ship directly to consumers, so there is no delivery by the salespeople. The primary goal here is to educate people about small changes they can make in their daily lives to become more "green," via in-home workshops.
