In order to be a better planet, Yahoo! wants people across America to use various Yahoo! services (see the list after the jump) to talk up green living. This isn't a long program; Yahoo! will declare a winner on June 8. Call it the Internet Age's version of a long-term commitment. If the winning city doesn't want the taxis, they can alternatively take an equivalent cash donation and dedicate it toward city greening projects.
