Hippy Shopper Launched

Posted By Darren Rowse 31st of March 2005 Case Studies 0 Comments

The team at Shiney Media in the UK have just launched another new Entrepreneurial blog – the Hippy Shopper – the UK’s first Green Consumer Blog.

Their News Release announcing the blog describes it as follows:

Published by the UK’s leading commercial weblog company, Shiny Media, and written by Stuff magazine‚s Managing Editor, Adam Vaughan, HippyShopper aims to enlighten and amuse its readers with green news stories from the UK and links to environmentally friendly sites around the world.

Its daily updates will:

Track the latest green gadgets
Tip readers off about what‚s coming in the organic food market
Give details of green exhibitions
Offer updates on eco-friendly health and beauty products
Give tips on how to recycle products

I love the concept – for a start its a blog with a message that will hopefully make a difference – but its also aiming to make a profit obviously. The main income stream on the Hippy Shopper so far is Adsense (green color scheme) – but I suspect it’ll be an ideal blog for some affiliate programs down the track.

One word of warning – don’t stare at their header too long – you could get a little freaked out and feel the need to smoke some funny grass or something.
