From Main Street to Wall Street... PLENTY Magazine Picks Top Green Companies That Will Change the World

Leading Eco-Lifestyle Magazine Kicks Off 2007 With the Launch of the PLENTY 20

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 22, 2007 -- Ewire -- In Its February/March Issue, PLENTY Magazine goes goodwill hunting and predicts the next green companies set to change the world in 2007 and the years to come. This must-read list recognizes twenty companies for pushing the eco-envelope and making a huge impact in the fast moving green revolution. From solar technology to fair trade coffee and ice-energy in between -- PLENTY ranks its selection of the top companies ready to make a difference and redefine what it means to be green in the marketplace.

"Since launching PLENTY, we've sought to educate readers about those green businesses and companies with cutting-edge eco-initiatives," says Mark Spellun, editor of PLENTY Magazine. "The green marketplace has become a large and diverse space and in selecting the PLENTY 20 we combed through the candidates, considering the company's reach, potential, influence and innovative vision."

The PLENTY 20 includes members of the Fortune 500 establishment whose initiatives are changing big business's relationship with the environment as well as smaller start-up companies, whose groundbreaking technology is shaping our vision for energy efficiency in the years ahead.

Among the PLENTY 20:

--  GreenFuel Technologies: introducing algae as the new weapon in the
    fight against global warming and the next wave of biofuel technology.
--  General Electric: its Ecoimagination initiative was just the
    beginning. Up next -- more than 40 green products, from water-stringy
    washing machines to fuel-efficient airplane engines, expected to hit the
    market in the years ahead.
--  Organic Valley: further pushing its groundbreaking, socially conscious
    and eco-friendly food production cooperative business model to supermarket
    shelves everywhere.
--  Ice Energy: bringing a surprisingly low-tech solution to the energy
    sapping air-conditioner industry with the introduction of the Ice Bear --
    an energy saving answer to overtaxed power grids and summer heat waves.
