New York, NY (PRWEB) July 16, 2008
"News, Reviews and Reports Supporting Sustainable Initiatives" is the slogan for http://www.greencrier.com which launched today providing a one-stop news and information portal.
Updated on Mondays, the service features aggregated news from around the globe. Today's headlines include: "Billionaire Oil Man Says Wind Energy is America's Future Cash Crop," "Hollywood Movie Set Goes Green with Help from 'Office' Star," and "Fujitsu Siemens Computers Touting Green PC."
To celebrate companies that are providing consumers with the opportunity to make a difference, greencrier.com will feature one company each week as well as one product. This week's company is the Arizona-based- http://www.freecycle.org , a nonprofit gifting movement enabling individuals to gift items in their local communities rather than to throw them away, a movement that is keeping over 400 tons out of landfills daily. This week's product is Nalgene reusable water bottles which help to combat the statistic that eight out of very 10 water bottles end up in the trash not in the recycling bin.
"We're hoping to both educate and learn," said Founder and Creative Director, W.B. King. "I suppose we're like the old town crier ringing the proverbial bell in the world's court…we hope that people at least listen and then decide for themselves if the presented information sparks thought, and hopefully action."
King, an award-winning writer and author, is joined by writers and researchers around the world who will contribute their respective talents to greencrier's mission. On September 15, greencrier.com will release its first industry whitepaper report: Green Strokes: How Retail Operators Profit from Sustainable Initiatives.
