Is it Green? Scan its Barcode to Find Out.
The first iPhone application that scans bar codes to provide ratings on healthy, green, and socially responsible products is here. The app – which is available for free from Apple’s iTunes App Store – allows consumers to compare and research more than 62,000 products by simply scanning the barcode.
But for those iPhone owners, there's no shortage of opportunities to live green with a wealth of apps for shopping, eating, or traveling. Remember, thought, to recharge those phone batteries in a sustainable way. And if you're plugging your phone into an electrical outlet, watch out for vampires!
