eBay Green Team is…uhhh….Green!!

ebaygreenteam-logo1 You know…..it is about time eBay finally came around to patting themselves on the back and started promoting just exactly how green of a company they really are.

Not only do they have one of the greenest buildings in all of San Jose and have green teams within all of their larger offices globally to promote green and eco initiatives in each and every eBay office; eBay itself is the absolute largest company in the world to promote and facilitate the re-use and recycling of goods. I would absolutely love to see the stats (if such statistics exist) of items kept out of landfills since eBay was created nearly 12 years ago.

In an effort to get people thinking about being more green and how eBay can help, they have launched community based Green Teams and they have an amazing and awesomely interactive site to go along with this launch.  Be sure to go check it out.

Hopefully you will begin to see much more info by means of social media via an employee group of users hitting the social media “airwaves” to help spread the good word (of which I am a member), as well as many community-based initiatives in cities where they have offices.  For example: Be sure to come down and visit with the SLC eBay CS employee Green Team on May 9th at the Salt Lake City Living Green Eco Festival.

Make Noise and Go Green!

MySpace is still around??

According to this article I just ran across on TechCrunch, Facebook is on it’s way to surpassing MySpace in total unique visitors.

On it’s way??  I didn’t know people even used MySpace anymore. I guess there are a lot more horrible bands, want-to-be porn stars and 12 year old friend collectors out there than I thought there were.

Make Noise!
