WebBEST*

WebBEST (Web Browser Environmental Sustainability Toolkit) – also known as the Firefox Environmental Sustainability Toolkit  seeks to educate the public about the impact their everyday choices make on the environment. The project addresses the world's sustainability issues by making environmental information readily available to users of many popular online sites. By connecting services like Google Maps, amazon.com, cars.com, albertsons.com, etc. to existing databases that contain relevant environmental information, the project subtly and effectively integrates that information into the existing services.
