Green Phone Service as announced the launch of a eco-friendly local and long distance telephone service that will enable customers to make green-powered phone calls with customer billed proceeds donated directly to leading environmental and climate-change organizations.

The company’s Web servers are 100 percent wind energy hosted and “Green Power Partner” certified by the EPA. A key objective is helping customers offset the release of approximately 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere annually, without sacrificing 99.95 percent carrier-class service reliability. This carbon reduction is equivalent to planting nearly 2,390 acres of trees or offsetting the environmental impact of 6.1 million miles of fossil fuel driving per year.

Andrew Beutmueller, founder and MD of Green Phone Service said, “We offer an easy way for people to live greener and support leading green charities while taking care of a basic utility at the same time. Because our infrastructure is super compact and largely digital, we can offer very low cost home and business phone service starting at about $9.95 per month.”

100 percent of net proceeds from monthly-billed telephone services are directly donated to leading environmental and climate change organizations. Log onto for more information on which charities green phone customers support

Richard Henderson, Green Phone Service co-Founder and COO said, “It’s a great feeling to run a business that is 100 percent about doing the right thing. It’s good for the planet, good for people’s wallet during these tough economic times and good for our bottom line. Whenever we get new investment or find new ways to re-invest our proceeds, we will devote them to the further greening of our network infrastructure and daily operations.”
