We've been watching the development of Open Green Map for awhile now, and the eco-minded mapping system is finally gearing up for an official world-wide launch on World Environment Day (June 5, in case you forgot). Click through for why you need to have this bookmarked when you travel. Open Green Maps allows users to chart and search green events, businesses, sights, travel and anything eco-minded on a Google map so that wherever you are traveling, you'll be able to find your way around as greenly as possible. Four thousand sites and 55 maps are already online for you to utilize. And in case you aren't sure about its reliability yet, Open Green Map is a winner in Tele Atlas' 2008 competition, and is a 2009 Index Awards finalist.

If you want to take part in their launch, you can check out various locations from New York City to Stockhom where parties are taking place.
