The Green Queen is a conscious company focused on residential cleaning, organizing and maintenance uniquely targeted toward today’s multi-hyphenate woman. Not only do I want to make a difference in individual homes, but I want to make a difference in my community and the world as well. In the paragraphs below you will read "Green Queen in the House" it highlights my home-cleaning side; "Bringing GQ to the streets" highlights my activism and community projects I am participating in; "Our Good Green Intentions" talks about what I need the funding for and what will happen if I do or do not receive it; "Show Me the Green" is the itemized breakdown of what the monies you donate will be used for; and lastly, "Psst..Spread the Word" is my request that keep this going! Pass it around to family and friends. Trust me, EVERY little bit and EVERY one helps. You will find my contact and social info at the end.
I believe that true royalty is not to be served but to serve humanity, and thus enters The Green Queen.
Today's multi-hyphenate womanincludes the frenzied businesswoman, the overburdened mom and many others. My aim is to bring valued clients and their loved ones back to their center by relieving them of their domestic burdens through the use of nontoxic, eco-friendly cleaning materials and practices. I am dedicated to improving the world- our shared living space- by restoring order to yours.
The Green Queen was created and officially launched by me, Juanita Chase, in January 2009. I wanted to create a self-propelled business that would give me the flexibility and income I needed to pursue a career in the arts. With deep-seated passions for social justice, environmental responsibility and artistic expression, my vision was not only to create a business with the sole intent of making money, but also to create opportunities that would benefit others (our clients, employees) and the world. I want to offer our clients time and peace of mind so that they are able to concentrate on the more important things in life. I personally make all of our own natural non-toxic cleaning products so I know exactly what is going into each bottle and into each home!
Currently GQ boasts a regular client list of 18 and we're growing, and this was secured with only me as the sole employee, imagine what we could do with more staff! I have outstanding "A" reviews across the board on Angie's List and 10 stellar reviews on Yelp! This business that started as a side job has grown immensely over the last two years because there was a need for quality and conscious work! Now that I have become aware of this demand, I am expanding to reach more people as well as broadening GQ services by further developing our cleaning products and adding more household management services in addition to cleaning.
Bringing GQ to the Streets!
GQ makes a difference in our community. This past October, myself and my partner participated in and won the Platinum Participant Award for the 2010 National Foster Care Walk- 'Walk Me Home' Los Angeles. Foster care is a very important issue to us at GQ because we feel that every child deserves a safe and welcoming home. America's foster care system is in desperate need of an overhaul in order to protect and encourage our youth from start to finish as well as transitioning to independence. It is important to us that no matter what your background that every child gets a fair chance at a home and an education.
In January 2011, GQ sponsored a very successful stage production titled FATIGUED. The night of two one acts dealt with the issues and effects of PTSD on returning US soldiers as well as the communities that they are coming home to. During the run of the show we collected donations for care packages that were given to one of our co-sponsors, Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude's mission is to send care packages to American Service Members who are deployed in hostile and remote regions of the world. We want to do our part to let our soldiers know they are in our hearts and their sacrifice does not go unrecognized.
