New Information Resource: WIMS Launches EcoBizPort
 
April 20, 2001:  In coordination with Earth Day 2001, Waste Information & Management Services, Inc. (WIMS), the publisher of 
Michigan Waste Report, officially launched its new environmental information business portal -- EcoBizPort.com. The website is designed to be a comprehensive, homepage linking businesses, professionals and individuals to the vast array of environmental information on the Internet. The site utilizes a unique organization methodology that delivers information at different levels including: a national basis, state-specific (only Michigan at this point), by professional specialties (air, water, hazardous waste, etc.), and by industry sectors (automotive, agriculture, pulp & paper, etc).  According to Jeff Dauphin, WIMS President, "EcoBizPort will be the homepage for citizens and environmental professionals because it can link them quickly to the information they need."  While the site is generally useful on a national/international basis, it provides even greater utility to Michigan users at this point in time.  Dauphin said, "There are currently over 3,000 links to critical environmental information resources and we will be continually expanding and improving the site utility for a variety of users."  WIMS is currently seeking advertisers and sponsors to assist in funding the further development of the site.
 
The site includes information "resource centers" including: Environmental News & Media; Search, Portals & Utilities; Local Area Data; e-Biz; Projects, RFPs, RFQs, etc.; Products & Services; Politics; Legal Resources; Education & Training; Trade Shows & Meetings; Associations & Organizations; Research & Publications; Maps, Weather & Geo-Info; Employment & Careers; and Other Biz.  The site also includes gateways to U.S. EPA, Courts, Congress, the White House, and many Michigan agencies and organizations.
