Many of you know I am a big fan of using web 2.0 type technology to enable sharing, barter and all that good stuff. Well now Natural Collection have launched a site called Ooffoo to do all that and more...
Here's the Scoop from Al Tepper (who many of you know of course already as 'The City Hippy' in his former role as chief blogger on the ecologist site, one of the first green bloggers certainly that I ever came across, and was generally one of the pioneers of green marketing meets web 2.0, before either were even called that. Plus he organises smile mobs on the London tube)...
Our brand new community site, ooffoo, has just gone live.
What can ooffoo do for you right now, FREE OF CHARGE?
On ooffoo it's FREE (using free classifieds and articles/blogs) to promote your businesses, events, programs, organisations, activities and services AND swap, sell, give away, recycle, trade, share ideas, tips, recipes and much more.
You can just come on in, have a good browse around, check out the homepage vote, maybe post a comment or two if you find an article that inspires you, and be a part of a unique and positive community.
If you blog or have helpful articles you have always wanted to write then get into ooffoo and be heard by a very dedicated eco audience.
If you have eco products or services to offer then come on in take a free classified (or a sponsored classified if you want to pack more punch) and even add valuable articles & blogs to start building up your 'ooffoo footprint'.
