Crowdsourcing green jobs is on the edge of the marketplace today, but new websites are springing up in locations around the word that are making it easier for consumers to find and hire service professionals like plumbers and handymen the green way.

Why is it green? Thats a great question, and while the definition of “green” changes daily, there are a few key aspects that make crowdsourcing green.
