eBay has been a green company since day one! I mean think about it, this has been a marketplace providing a way for all users to buy and sell used products. Keeping products out of landfills and making money at the same time! What more could anyone ask for! THANKS EBAY!
86 million buyers and sellers on eBay have reused over $100 billion worth of products since 1998.
eBay staff has been a part of the “Green Team’ for several years as they were making eBay a Greener place to work. This team has evolved into a huge organization standing behind a great cause!
The Green Team was developed and launched publicly last month. I was honored to have Libby Reder on my radio show @ PowerSellingMomRadio.com . Libby is the Program Manager of Global Citizenship at eBay. “The green team evolved very organically” she shares with us during the interview. She further explains how eBay's leadership stands behind this project 100% with creating a "Greener eBay!"
John Donahoe, eBay's CEO was part of the "Green Vine" cutting ceremony during the grand opening of eBay's "Mint" building in May, 2008. This building holds 3,248 solar panels covering 60,000 square feet. And was designed and built to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standard. (more details and photos on this project can be read at: eBayInkBlog.com.
