Useful Green Apps for your iPhone

I get a warm fuzzy feeling when one of my children (grown up children) call with information or questions about green living or sustainability. A few weeks ago my son called and asked if I would come to his house this summer to give a presentation on sustainability to 8-10 of his friends! Knock me down with a feather!

I must be getting through to him!

Today, my daughter called and offered these phone apps she found that she wants to share with others:

GOOD GUIDE APP helps you "find safe, healthy and sustainable products while you shop. Scan the barcode of the product and immediately see detailed ratings for health, environmental and social responsibility for over 100,000 products.

LOCAVORE FOR IPHONE lets you find out what's fresh and in season for your location, including restaurants that feature these products.

SEAFOOD WATCH APP from the Monterey Bay Aquarium helps you to choose seafood that's not over-harvested or harvested in a way that causes habitat destruction, or is farmed in a way that is polluting or unhealthy.

IRECYCLE is a guide to local resources including recycling centers, how to recycle, pollution prevention and general information on how to protect the environment.

All these apps are free and very useful for people on the go.
