Grist

http://www.grist.org

Grist has been dishing out environmental news and commentary with a wry twist since 1999 -- which, to be frank, was way before most people cared about such things. Now that green is in every headline and on every store shelf (bamboo hair gel, anyone?), Grist is the one site you can count on to help you make sense of it all.

ioby

http://www.ioby.org

ioby brings environmental projects to life, block by block. ioby connects people and money to site-based projects. All of these projects are conceived, designed, and run by neighbors—which ensures community buy-in, long-term caretakers and daily reminders of what’s been achieved.
Successful projects are then magnified, so they can benefit other neighborhoods—and the positive impact can ripple throughout the city. ioby is about having a stake in the game, engaging with others while you do so, and seeing and living with the end result.

Google Green

http://www.google.com/green

At Google, we've worked hard to minimize the environmental impact of our services. For instance, to provide users with nonstop YouTube for three weeks, Google uses less energy than it takes to do a single load of laundry. If you add in our renewable energy and offsets, our footprint is zero. And we continue to find new ways to reduce our impact even further.

Chicago Trees Initiative

http://www.chicagotrees.net

The Chicago Trees Initiative is a city-wide, public-private effort to plant, care for and advocate for trees. This means many more trees will be planted in our great city, which is already known for its green urban spaces. And more important, existing trees will have better care – the best strategy for meeting our urban forest canopy goal. Every Chicago resident – and indeed, anyone who cares about trees has an important role to play. The goal invites all of us to be involved in planting and caring for trees on public and private land throughout the city.
