Nokia has a great green travel resource that is up in beta mode called Green Explorer, writes Jaymi Heimbuch on treehugger.
"It is geared specifically for people who want to travel in an eco-friendly fashion and provide their own travel tips, and the site has quite a few features that can make it a top resource when it comes out of beta.
Green Explorer has been up and running since the beginning of December. It features travel news, eco-centered information about destinations, tips from fellow green travelers, easy carbon offsets, mobile device access, and loads more.
Nokia is adding this service not because they make any money off it, nor because it ties in very strongly with their mobile device manufacturing. They're adding it because it's the right thing to do. The company is working to come up with many services like this that focus on the environment.
