Waste Management Jumps On Web 2.0 Bandwagon
Houston-based Waste Management Inc., a provider of waste management and environmental services, unveiled a green-focused, social networking Web site Tuesday. Waste Management said the site, called Greenopolis.com, aims to educate people on the environment and then reward them for their positive actions. In addition to offering features common to other Web 2.0-based social networking sites, Greenopolis.com includes games, an eco-friendly online marketplace, environmentally "sensitive" user profiles and merit badges that are awarded for green deeds. The site is currently in beta, Waste Management added.
