At the click of a button, the free app allows you to search for greenest businesses close to you and those eco-friendly product that you’ve been craving for so much. Over 20,000 business listings for over 30 major cities in Canada and the US have already been enlisted. And with more to follow you are guaranteed to find what you need not too far away from home.
But how does it work? Green businesses are being listed by going through directories that certify and accredit green products and services. Then checked, compared with standards and then assigned ratings: 1 to 3 Whales. Definitely a must have for the iPhone user with an eco-friendly bent, the geeky chaps decided to bring in an Android version (soon), too. [via TreeHugger]
