Encino, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2009
On March 28, 2009, Zipweb.com joined the state of California, the United States and the world in celebrating Earth Hour, a global initiative to reduce our carbon footprint worldwide, one person at a time.
ZipWeb is a Los Angeles, CA-based search engine whose simple mission is to connect local businesses with local customers. Utilizing a patent pending search algorithm that favors truly local businesses in its search results, ZipWeb.com provides users with an effective uncluttered way to find businesses nearby without the hassle of sorting through big-business search results, while it helps smaller local businesses connect online with those who matter most: local customers.
"ZipWeb's mission is to support local communities by helping local customers find real local businesses," said Mark Cave, CEO of EBridge. "Over the weekend of Earth Hour, we felt it was our privilege and responsibility to connect our clients and site users in a manner that could facilitate participation in this global initiative - in a truly local way."
It was projected that one billion people and businesses would participate in Earth Hour in 2009 by powering down for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 pm local time. California was one of the first states to sign on as an "Earth Hour state", supporting the cause by turning off unnecessary lighting on global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, amongst others. ZipWeb was pleased to join the movement in its home state of California by replacing its website advertising for the weekend with a graphic ad for Earth Hour. That graphic ad linked to a specially designated page on ZipWeb's site spotlighting all of the restaurants in California participating in Dine By Candlelight 2009, an Earth Hour initiative for restaurateurs.
