In Honor of Earth Day

Today is Earth Day, so instead of preaching--like I normally would--about how we should live Earth Day everyday we'll be looking at some internet services that take that green approach. First on the list:

EnviroFile is a rather small file sharing website. What's different about this one from all the countless others. Well, whenever a person downloads your file from this site you earn money. Pretty neat, huh? What does that have to do with Earth Day, you say? Well, 10% of this site's profits are donated to environmental organizations. So, in effect, by uploading a file to this site and getting people to download it you are profiting and saving the planet all at the same time and with little effort. Yeah, I thought it was neat too.

Want to host your own website? Look no further than, located in sunny California. This webhost uses solar energy to power its fleet of servers. This not only helps stop the production of excess carbon emissions, but saves them money. These savings conveniently comes across to you the consumer with plans starting at $9.95/month. AISO (which stands for Affordable Internet Services Online btw) has an impressive resume and a guaranteed 100% uptime. Sounds like a good deal to me.

You know how you trade in your old cell phone for a new on every two years. What do you do with those old phones? You can recycle them or you can sell them to a company that will repurpose them and give them new use. That's right with Green Phone you can keep that cell phone from filling up a landfill and fill up your pockets instead!

Got a cool site that's not on the list? Leave it in the comments!
