When one thinks of environmentally forward-thinking businesses, some companies spring immediately to mind: Whole Foods Market (WFM), Annie's (BNNY), Patagonia, Seventh Generation, and Method, for example, are all known for their commitment to being green.

However, there are other firms putting a lot of resources into planet-helping initiatives -- companies whose green tactics are far less recognized, and may even come as a surprise to you. Let's take a look at a few.

Unilever spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to defeat California's Prop. 37, labeling of GMO foods because they use GMO Soybean oil for their mayonnaise(s) and who knows what other chemicals in other products. To me, that's not going "green". After many year using Best Foods Mayo, I have to make my own may now - and I'm not the only one!!
