This policy is valid as of August 1, 2009. This blog meant to be a guide to green living and environmentally-friendly products and is written and edited by Jennae Petersen. For questions about this blog, please contact me. Green & Gorgeous accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship or other forms of compensation and participates in affiliate programs.
I may be compensated to provide content about products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though I receive compensation for some posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog belong purely to Jennae Petersen. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question, though we will do our best to make sure that any information provided is accurate.
I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. Any content, advertising space or post that comes with compensation via product, service or cash will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content. I will identify such content as follows:
(aff): Affiliate links, meaning if you purchase a product after clicking on any of these links, I will receive a commission on the sale.
(review): I received only a free sample of the product or service to review and write about my thoughts. What I write reflects my honest opinion, and I am under no obligation to write a positive review. However, I try to weed out products I don’t believe would be useful to me or my readers before agreeing to do a review in the first place. When I do reviews, I will offer my fair, balanced opinion and list pros and cons.
(sponsored opp): A sponsored opportunity in which a company or PR firm paid my way to an event, sent me on a trip, or otherwise sponsored me via a product, service or compensation for my time. As a part of their sponsorship package, they may have requested that I write a review or series of posts about their products or services on my site. The opinions contained in these posts are my own, and again, I am under no obligation to write a positive review.
(sponsored post): An advertiser has written their own copy, edited by me, and paid me a fee for posting it on my site. These posts will appear infrequently and will not contain my opinion.
