green news websitesNowadays the internet offers a wide variety of green news websites to keep you updated of environmental news and events.

It is interesting to watch this web niche evolve. Social media has brought a new generation of green resources. You can now be a green news source yourself (by participating in green social networks), become a part of huge green communities (by frequenting environmental blogs) or even watch green news using Twitter!

Let’s have a look at a few examples of new creative environmentally friendly resources to help you go green.

User-Generated Green News:

I Do The Right Thing

I Do the Right Thing is a user generated resource where “you can get unfiltered information about the impacts of companies on” the environment.

The green stories are rated based on the impact they produce on the society and/or environment. The process of voting for the story is as follows: you should define the impact to be positive, negative or neutral.

The companies are also rated based on the overall score of all stories they were mentioned in.

Care 2 is a green social networking and bookmarking site allowing users to submit and vote for green tips, news and apps.

Besides being a great news resource, it offers quite a few cool green features: you can send “leaves” to the members inspiring you or find support for your own cause by starting a petition.

Green Deals Daily will appeal to all conscious online bargain hunters 13 Bargain Websites That are Cheaper than eBay 13 Bargain Websites That are Cheaper than eBay Read More . The site allows users to submit, comment and vote for online green deals. What a treat for those who want to both save money and help the environment!

Best Green News Blogs:

Environmental Graffiti - green news blog

Environmental Graffiti will appeal to all those who love beautiful imaginary. The site raises environmental awareness by posting impressive pictures of the Nature.

Tree Hugger is the most well-known green blog on the internet, I guess. Besides updating the blog with multiple news-worthy posts daily, the site also offers a very active forum, green guides and even a green job board.

The Good Human (as the name suggests) is more focused on the human aspect: what each of us can do to help save the green planet.

Green Options is an all-in-one resource of green news aggregating stories from all over the environmentally friendly sites and blogs.

Ecorazzi takes a more entertaining perspective by posting green gossip and sensational stories.

Viropop is good for all who loves online video. Besides being a green user-generated video-sharing community, it also maintains a green video blog.

Green Micro-Blogs

Lighter Footstep

Lighter Footstep Twitter Profile will real-time update you of new green tips and articles.

GreenerIdeal is another cool green Twitter micro-blog to follow.

Ecopreneurist micro-blogs on news and advice on sustainable and social entrepreneurship.

GreenNews focuses on environment related news.

How green are you? Do you frequent green websites? Please share your list!

    Hey Love this post on Green News and also your great post on green search engines. I wrote a whole story about it here: http://tinyurl.com/chxqwo

    It's amazing that there are almost NO green news video blogs. Zaproot is just about the only one, and while great its very "consumer news" oriented.

    So I started what apparently is one of the first real green news video blogs on GreenDig called the Daily Dig. It's a countdown of the top 4 most intriguing environmental news stories of the day. You can watch it on the GreenDig home page or subscribe on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/greendignews

    While not a exactly a news site, I think that cleantechnica.com has some merit.

    "A fresh, up-to-date perspective on the latest trends in clean tech. From renewable energy sources, to less toxic electronics and more efficient information technology, Cleantechnica introduces readers to the full scope of clean technology in language that doesn’t require an engineering degree."

    Granolafag.com isn't updated very often, but it's good insight.

    You should also check out <href="http://www.greenplanetsearch.com"title="Green Planet Search"> they have over 220 articles and 80% are video! It's super easy to navigate and they have their own search engine (not a Google Yahoo search) but their own highly targeted spider that crawls all the major engines and directories to retrieve super relevant search results. Green Planet Search also has a Forum/Chat section where you can post your photo and tell the world what you are doing green.
    It has also won several design awards (the interface is an experience by itself).
