Introducing Amazon Green

While it may seem like they're jumping on the "Green bandwagon", I have to give Amazon.com credit for attempting to make eco-friendly products more discoverable and accessible to the general public with their new Amazon Green portal.

The portal features a variety of "green" products such as cleaning supplies, energy-star compliant appliances, baby products, and efficient lighting products.  From a quick initial look, there are quite a few products on the site I'd be interested in purchasing, and having Amazon's famous customer reviews to add extra information on each is a big help in making decisions.  Another common complaint about buying "green" is the extra cost.  Don't forget Amazon's Prime program, in which you pay a flat fee for unlimited second-day shipping for an entire year.  Buy green to save some green!
