EPA social media for Earth Day

Shares

Hey, as I work more and more with Federal web people (my fellow nerds) I'm getting to see really good stuff from folks.

Check out Pick 5 for the environment.

The concept's simple enough: they give you 10 actions and ask you to commit to at least 5.  Their Web page lets you select them and then gives you a little certificate you can print.  But what's interesting is the social media options, not only the usual sharing options, but they've set up a Facebook fan page and application (one of the first from the federal gov't), plus groups on Flickr and YouTube to share photos and videos as you go about doing what you committed to.

Me, it's 1-4, and 8

WORKING TO SAVE RIVERSIDE GREYHOUND from being booted out of Downtown Riverside CA. It provides 83,000 trips a year, yet our officials still seem bound and determined to force them out of the Downtown area (while trying to give the impression that this is not so — at least until the June 2 Council election is over). Keeping Greyhound in Downtown Riverside will help to reduce pollution, extra car trips, congestion and more. Pushing it out of Riverside altogether or to the fringes of Riverside will deter citizens from using this mode of transit, and may push people back into cars.
4. Reduce, reuse, recycle
8. eCycle! Take your old computer, DVD player, or other electrionices to a recycling center . . .
10. Spread the Word!
