Greenopolis: Social Networking at its Greenest?

There is a new social networking site called Greenopolis. It's all about sharing green ideas with a network of people focused on green issues. I didn't realize that "niche social networking" was in, but its a natural progression... like minded groups are bound to want to find each other more easily online.

A good portion of the site is educational, but there are also media content from The Green Broadcast System (GBS) stated to be the"premier collection of sustainability-related news, video, and podcasts." The Galleria features green products and books. There is a eGreenU section for schools to collect education materials, there are blogs, events, polls, forums, groups... the list goes on and on.

As part of your profile you can answer a series of questions that determine your "badge level." Clearly I am way behind the times because I was labeled a "Green Newbie." Actually a little embarrassing! But I guess the point of the badge is to try and improve your score through behavioral changes, such as not using 6-10 consumer products like I do to fix my hair and makeup in the morning.

The organizations which offer auto account in Brisbane, would be paying the sum only until further notice and you would need to reimburse them as portions. So all they go for is making things less demanding for you right then and there in light of the fact that it is difficult to pay entire of the sum just independent from anyone else.
