Are you eco-conscious and feeling guilty about having online purchases shipped to you? Watch out for ShopGreen! "ShopGreen is a carbon offset program. Yes, carbon offsetting is not a solution to our global warming woes. Reduced consumption is more effective. But, if you need to purchase something, it's good to have a way to offset at least part of that purchase. And this web app helps you easily invest 1% of the purchase price of the item in carbon offsets." [Treehugger]
