Group buying has become a big trend in recent months, with websites like Groupon, Living Social and WagJag. However, there is a new group buying website called ethicalDeal that specializes in deals offered by local green business, making it even easier to find affordable green products or services near your home.


How group buying works

Just like Groupon, once enough people commit to buying the deal offered by a green business on ethicalDeal each day, a big discount is applied giving everyone a price-break on a great product or service.
