Earth Day Online
April 22, 2008
It’s Earth Day, everybody! Since 1970, this day dedicated to eco-fun and frolic has steadily gained traction in the marketplace. And today, Earth Day ’08, the Gaeaic geeksters at Mozilla will launch Flock Eco-Edition, a browser bent on corralling users’ social networking sites (think Facebook, Flickr, etcetera), as well as the latest enviro-minded news bytes from green-spirited sites like TreeHugger, Ecorazzi, and Grist, in one simple browser. This way, Eco-Edition users can share green news quick and easy with their contacts — all the better to get the green word out. But wait! There’s more: TreeHugger’s Mairi Beautyman reports that 10 percent of the proceeds from Flock Eco-Edition will go to a user-selected environmental cause.
As a card-carrying Mozilla maniac, I’ll be grabbin’ Eco-E ASAP this morning. Grassroots green via the Web = pretty savvy.
How will you celebrate Earth Day?
