iPhone Applications for the Environmentally Friendly

If you own an iPhone, you are probably as addicted to their AppStore as I’ve been over the last couple of months. From silly (yet shockingly addictive) mobile games to restaurant-finder apps, there are over 4,900 applications to choose from (and counting!). There’s really something for everyone at the AppStore. Even for those who care about the environment, like the members of Guidance Green. Check these out:

Local Reuse
Did you know the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that in 2008 Americans will send over 12.5 million tons of reusable items to their local landfills? You can help reduce that number by listing your items on Local Reuse, an iPhone application that lets users post and search for used goods in their area.

Green Tips and Go Green
So many eco-friendly tips, so little time to learn them … so why don’t you learn them on the go?! With Green Tips and Go Green, you’ll get a brand new eco-friendly tip every time you launch the application. They are both fairly similar, but each will give you a different tip. Double the tips, double the fun!

Enjoy the apps!

Hello from MeterRead,

Will you please include our new iPhone app, MeterRead in this story? It is money saving eco-friendly app that allows users to easily read their electric meter and track energy use. Based on a single reading, MeterRead can track the total time elapsed since the last read, total kW-h, average watt load and estimate a 30 day future kW-h usage. Please visit for details or check the App Store.

It could save you hundreds of dollars and it will help the environment.

E-commerce applications can be of three types. Inter-organizational or within business, business-to-business (B2B), and business-to-customer (B2C).
