Available environmental activism has never before been so beautifully, or easily integrated into today's technology. iPhorest is an iphone application which enables even the most laziest of asses to aide in replenishing forests.
After downloading the $4.99 app, the iPhorest lets you go through the virtual act of planting a tree--digging a hole, planting a seedling, and creating rain storms by shaking the phone. After six shakes, the sun appears and a tree pops up. Every time a virtual tree is planted, The Conservation Fund plants a tree along the Gulf Coast. The amount of cash that goes from a single iPhorest purchase to the Conservation Fund varies depending on tree species and plant location, but some of your money goes directly to a brand new seedling. A world map also shows the locations of iPhoresters around the world.
