Android ecoTips - Tips to save the Nature

From WikiPedia:
The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is an international non-governmental organization working on issues regarding the conservation, research and restoration of the environment, formerly named the World Wildlife Fund, which remains its official name in the United States and Canada. It is the world's largest independent conservation organization with over 5 million supporters worldwide, working in more than 90 countries, supporting around 1300 conservation and environmental projects around the world.
...
The group says its mission is "to halt and reverse the destruction of our environment".


So it's really great org, they do the right stuff for human survival.
Also there is a list of tips on their website.
