Looking to “Go Green?” Look no further than the World Wide Web! Dozens of websites and blogs appear daily, offering a wide variety of tips, tools, tactics and strategies to promote conservation, sustainability, and green products.
Of course, some green websites and blogs are better than others. Steer clear of the ones that only push a commercial product. Instead, look for sites that offer a strong perspective on environmental sustainability, a number of “how to” items or articles, newsfeeds on green issues, and recommendations for eco-friendly products and services. Large organizations, non-profits, government and academic centers offer terrific resources and limited numbers of banner ads.
Green webistes and blogs have gotten more sophisticated. More feature green applications that facilitate communication, information sharing, collaboration and community: the very best of Web 2.0 and sure to appeal to the “green-tech” generation.
