Green MBA graduates from Dominican University of California used Google's Co-op program to create this customized search engine. The engine for now uses about 4000 handpicked green websites to deliver results.
I think it is a brilliant idea, but definitely a work in progress. I tried searching for "Live Earth tickets". The results were not entirely relevant. Expanding Green Maven's search list is essential to deliver better results. With so many greenwashing scams out there, expanding that list will indeed be a delicate balancing act. Kudos & Best wishes to the Green Maven team!

You probably have already heard about Al Gore & Kevin Wall's Live Earth initiative. A concert to raise global awareness on global warming. On 07/07/07, 7 concerts across 7 continents
Live Earth will use the global reach of music to engage people on a mass scale to combat our climate crisis. Live Earth will bring together more than 150 of the world’s top musicians for 24-hours of music from 7 concerts across all 7 continents. Live Earth will bring together an audience of more than 2 billion at the concerts and through television, radio, film, and the Internet. That audience, and the proceeds from the event, will create the foundation for a new, multi-year global effort to combat the climate crisis led by Vice President Al Gore. Kevin Wall, Worldwide Executive Producer of Live 8, is producing Live Earth.Al Gore is fast becoming a super star! As I said before, "Run Gore Run"
All Live Earth venues will be designed and constructed by a groundbreaking team of sustainability engineers and advisors directed by John Picard. This greening team will address the environmental and energy management concerns of each concert site, as well as the operations of sponsors, partners, and other Live Earth affiliates.
Each venue will not only be designed to maintain a minimum environmental impact, but will showcase the latest state-of-the-art energy efficiency, on-site power generation, and sustainable facilities management practices.
