Agency History

Abraham Paiss & Associates, Inc. (APA) was founded in June 1996 as a woman-owned strategic PR/marketing communications agency whose mission is to support sustainable solutions. We are honored to work with far-sighted entrepreneurs whose products and services help lower our carbon footprint and make our world healthier and more sustainable.
Over the past 20 years, we have served many industries that impact our daily life. We have represented energy-efficient building products and design/build companies, low carbon transportation options, urban agriculture and local food products, renewable energy manufacturers and installers, sustainable development firms and community-based neighborhoods. From 1997 to 2007, we served as the National Media Contact for the Cohousing Association of the United States, and were development consultants to more than two dozen cohousing neighborhoods across the U.S. Most recently, we started the Rocky Mountain Hemp Association, which expanded to become the National Hemp Association, a Colorado not for profit we ran from 2014 through September 2016.
We see the next 10 years as pivotal to Earth’s history with Climate Change accelerating much faster than scientists originally modeled. We are dedicated to expanding our Sustainable Mail Program, Industrial Hemp Consulting and providing strategic communication services that will help visionary companies bring to market new products to lower our carbon impact and create a more sustainable future for our society.
