As parents themselves, the owners of Green Apple Supply want the best for your kids. And as global citizens, they know we are all faced with the responsibility to care for our planet, and each other. What began as an endeavor to feed their family natural, organic foods, has grown into a much larger enterprise. They were lucky to be able to provide only the best for their family, but they believe that every family should have access to the finest. When Green Apple Supply inquired as to why individuals were choosing traditional products rather than opting for eco-friendly versions, they were typically given one of two answers: green products are too expensive, or there are too many choices, and some are not effective. So by utilizing economies of scale, wholesale purchasing power, and personal product experience, Green Apple Supply is making it easier for anyone to purchase Earth-friendly products. Green Apple Supply is a non-profit effort and products are sold as close to cost as possible. Why? Because they think it’s the right thing to do.
