We really hope this whole green revolution isn’t some fad. Time and time again, the coolest shenanigans have busted faster than you can dance the Macarena. Thankfully for Mother Earth, Apple offers some fresh “green” apps in their iTunes garden.
Don’t let enviro-fabulousness go the way of shoulder pads, lava lamps and puka shell necklaces. Here are a few apps for your iPhone and iPod touch that are sure to shrink your carbon footprint.
Green List Daily
Go Green Free
Okay, we’re unabashedly biased. How can we not totally love an app that has a feature called the “Green List?” G-List in the hizz-ouse! Go Green Free offers tons of sweet tips and shells one out to you each time you launch the app. Not only are the tips unexpected and helpful, they also contribute to your “Green Status.” Status, huh? How swanky. It’s like a velvet rope, only biodegradable.

Dream a Little Dream
More relaxation than conservation, Dream: Green helps the weary wanderer find inner peace. Pop in your earbuds and enjoy the soothing sounds of the green planet, whether it’s wind, water or wildlife. Adjusting and combining sound types and volumes gives this app an extra personal touch. Dream: Green might not directly affect the environment, but any app that decreases hot air output sounds beneficial to us.
