OK, there are two relatively new Green clearinghouse sites that we should all check out, if for no other reaso than to choose! (I mean, how much green content can one greenie read?)
First up, and around a little longer: EarthFirst.com
Looks like it's been around 4 months or so. And their mission is, shall we say, strongly stated as follows:
We are passionate about the environment and dedicated to cutting through the eco-fluff to get to the heart of the new green movement. We think there are a lot of greenwashers and opportunists out there who could care less about actively doing some good in the world, and we’re going to be all over them out here on our blog and in our soon-to-be-released video shows. We think green should be fun and cool, and are in love with the power of sarcasm and snark. Greenwashers and jerkasses of the world: beware. We’re watching.
I'm not sure how much overlap there is between "sarcasm and snark" and actual passion and activism...this site aims to push that envelope.
What I do like is that, unlike so many sites that pretend they're bloggy, but are really quite traditional, they put community right up front where you can see it. Their tag cloud and recent comments are right up top, above the fold.
Now, if they could make it a little easier to find their RSS feeds? I might actually subscribe.
Not so cool is the prominence of their "25 Hottest Girls in Green" feature.
At least give me the hottest people in both genders. WTF?
Second up: The Huffington Post's new Green sub-site
Like the rest of the HuffPo they are writer-focused, not really community-focused. They don't quite have the celebrity star-power that they launched the original HuffPo with, but at this point the HuffPo has more than established its credibility from a content point of view, so it's cool. I see some favorite eco-bloggers, and just some cool folks writing for them.
The HuffPo Green site is also annoying about finding its feed, mostly because it looks like they haven't added it to their syndication page yet.
So have you checked these two green clearinghouse sites out yet? Are you goig to follow one or the other, or both?
Or would you rather just see all your green options in one place, like on Alltop's green site?
Reviews? Opinions? Recommendations?
