Rebecca was torn between the high-end fashion she loved, and the animals and planet she adored.

Eco-friendly relationships blossom at green-networking events
SMALL BUSINESS - September 29, 2009|Cyndia Zwahlen
Environmentally minded business professionals are increasingly finding one another -- and finding jobs -- at green-networking events.
Women of the Green Generation: This new group held its third evening meeting last week in West Hollywood, and it is already the subject of a documentary on women in eco-oriented businesses. It was organized by Kris Willey for professional women involved in what she calls "the green movement."
"I started going to all these green-networking groups but realized that 95% of the people I was connecting with were women," said Willey. The response to her new group has been overwhelming, she said. About 45 women attended her most recent event celebrating raw foods at the Vernare eco-showroom in West Hollywood.
