http://www.treehugger.com is a website devoted to environmental awareness and action. At the top of the site’s page you will see three columns: “1. Get Informed”, “2. Interact”, and “3. Take Action”. This feature shows Treehugger’s main goals very clearly, to promote awareness of environmental problems, to allow for communications about the issues, and to encourage people to help the environment. Some really interesting features include: slideshows, articles involving celebrities and fashion, games, quizzes, and even a job board! Even though the website has pizazz, it still covers very serious and important issues. Some of the more practical features include articles about: science, food/health, business/politics, green basics, and a guide on how to go green. The “guide” is a series of links that are divided into many categories so that you can read thorough information on how to be more environmentally friendly in every aspect of your life.
