Liz thanks for your request. I asked if our graphic designer can produce a B&W version of the logo today. If he can we'll post it to this page alongside the green one. Thanks again.
Understanding that you have chose green to symbolize a "green" project. It would really help to have a strong b&W logo to reprint. We always want to give eco-palms a "plug" in many of our bulletins.
