GIYP to Launch New Directory Model
The Green Industry Yellow Pages (GIYP) announced last week that it will expand its national yellow pages directory into a variety of streamlined media directories.

Currently, users can access all of the listings in the national GIYP database through the online directories of GIYP’s media partners.
