(Washington, D.C. – Dec. 9, 2008) Why not blog on important environmental issues while waiting to pay for holiday gifts at the mall? No, you don’t have to ask Santa for this present. EPA is launching one of the first government Web sites tailored specifically for cell phone users: http://m.epa.gov.

The world is getting more mobile, with estimates of more than 250 million cell phones in use in the U.S. – and EPA is going with you. The site has been tailored to load fast on a small screen, providing EPA information that visitors might need when they are away from their large-screen desktop computer. Services available on m.epa.gov include:

    • how to contact EPA – national and regional offices
    • Find environmental information by ZIP code
    • EPA news releases
    • Greenversations blog, including the question of the week
    • links to other government mobile websites.

Over the coming months, EPA will be adding more features. We invite readers to help us improve – there’s a feedback form right on the home page.
