Are We not Green? We Are E-V-O!

EVO! it's eco. it's EVOlutionary. It's "your marketplace for natural, clean & green products" and it's brand new (there was actually a media embargo until 8:00 am this morning). it's a web 2.0 green play, but looks way solid + fun! Think of a green version of amazondotcom meets digg, meets GroovyGreen. EVO is a green e-commerce hub-- there's already over 20,000 green products available a mouse click away, but the goal is more than that--- a place for news and views, and (online) community building.

And that they will eventually have members of their community adding products (as well as of course suggesting products to their "friends"). I think this 2.0 part makes this a killer ap (in the sense that a crappy product, a greenwashed product, or a company with horrible customer service will be mentioned by the masses--- as well as the best) so the creme will rise, and the newest-and-greenest will also be able to share the spotlight! Seriously, this is going to be a great watershed for finding the ideal green paint, the ideal eco fashion fall collection, or anything else you can consume. But it's not just about consumption right? Heck no.

Well it is a store, so there is some of that marketing & commercialization (a lot of that-- but really cool stuff like solar purses and electric cars!) But there is a whole section where you can shop around to find the best places to put your money (clean tech, green investments...). And there are so many articles, one might just think this is a blog (but it's not). I read a really nice clear post about B Corporations--- (and boy how i love learning a new term!!!!). And they even have cute video news!


So go check it out! it's EVO, it's live now. Sign up and they'll plant a tree in your name!!!

Re: Earth Day Specials are not Earthday PSAs silly

Meh-- never bullshit a bullshitter Matt.

FYI, you say "Depot is having an Earth Day Sale. "Stop buy" [sic] (BUY not 'stop by') for Earthday Specials. Use Coupon code " sbgreen " for extradiscounts blah blah blah....

so as far as i can tell you are not at all advertising EarthDay. you are talking about your earthday sales and you are advertising ecodepot. There is not one dern thing in your comment(s) about EarthDay that could make anyone think you are advertising the 'holiday' it is to get people to go to your ecommerce site and buy crap. Buying crap on earthday is lame (even when its rechargeable batteries). Buy nothing on earth day, that's where the kewls are.

Personally i think advertising by anonymous comments in blogs is L-A-M-E, and i take offense to people using my LJ as a way to drum revenues for their eco businesses. Thats what BUYING ADVERTISING is for. its not expensive. and if you have a legit e-commerce site there is nothing wrong with buying ads on groovygreen, ecorazzi, treehugger, worldchanging, ecochick, or any of the pro sites who sell advertising. it is way affordable and does not lead to offensiveness....

The Earth Day Special was all about the Sanyo eneloop rechargeable batteries. That was the Earth Day give away. !!

Really sorry to leave a comment in your forum about an Earth day special. We wont do it again.

P.S. if we were trying to do something bad we would not have used our name. Also if you don't want any old person posting here I suggest you make a member sign in or at least moderate the comments.
Best Regards.
