The Green is Universal team from NBCUniversal has just announced the first-ever “Green Square” application, a green-themed, location-based app for iPhone and Droid. It will help you to help your neighbors live a little greener by sharing your favorite environmentally friendly places. You can download the free app here: http://greensquare.greenisuniversal.com/
- Users are able to earn traditional Foursquare badges as well as special green badges. Green is Universal coffee cart locations are popping up in NYC, LA and Chicago as part of the “Mugs Save Trees” program and will offer users a free cup of coffee with a reusable mug and a “Green Week Badge” if they check in using Green Square.
- Green Square offers a curated list of 120 green hotspots across four categories: sustainable design, parks, food and community. The initial 10 cities featured in Green Square are New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Washington D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco and Dallas. The app also allows users to nominate their own “Green Scenes” that they feel qualify as a hotspot.
