OK, I'm not a tree hugger per se, but I do like this idea of sustainability and doing what I can to help the environment. I do the simple things like recycle my Diet Coke cans, turn off lights when not in use, I don't print things off on the printer unless absolutely necessary, telecommute as much as possible, and so on and so forth.
So when I got the new Samsung Replenish today and downloaded the Green ID Pack, it made me feel all the better. There are some cool apps that come with this pack. A few of the coolest include:
iRecycle - if I want to recycle a car battery, I select Battery, then select Car Battery, and based on my location, gives me the closest recycling center. In my case, it's the Firestone Complete Auto Care Store, which is .8 miles from my house. Pretty slick stuff.
Green America - educational tidbits and tips on how to be environmentally responsible.
Treehugger - articles and links on topics like 'What determines the price of gas?' Spoiler - longer shipping routes, more refined gas more convenient service station locations, higher taxes, and of course, the ever rising price of crude oil
eBay Green - their tagline is 'inspiring the world to buy, sell and think green everyday.' Everything from vintage family board games to petrified wood bookends.
ecoetsy - 'Etsy sellers dedicated to reducing, reusing and recycling.' I think a lot of the ladies dig this site, as it's pretty crafty.
