BASKING RIDGE, N.J., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless encourages mobile users to make a difference this Earth Day by "going green" with some simple tips that will help conserve the Earth's resources.

-- Sign Up For the Green Bill

Verizon Wireless' Green Bill gives customers a useful way to access, organize and analyze their account information, while at the same time, saving paper by eliminating the monthly bill in your mailbox. To sign up, visit www.verizonwireless.com/myaccount .

-- Recycle a No-Longer-Used Wireless Phone

Stop by a Verizon Wireless Communications Store and give your old wireless phones to the company's HopeLine(R) phone recycling program. The phones will be disposed of properly or refurbished for resale and reuse, with proceeds going to victims of domestic violence.

-- Unplug Your Charger When It's Not In Use

Use a power strip for your wireless phone or PDA chargers, then make sure to switch it off when everything has been charged so you don't use "phantom" energy.

-- Download or Preload Directions in VZ Navigator(SM) to Save Fuel When Traveling

Not sure how to get where you're going? Use VZ Navigator to find the most direct route to your destination and save on fuel costs. But, in case you need to fill up along the way, use FuelFinder (on Mobile Web(SM)) to find the least expensive gas for your car.

-- Work from Home -- or Anywhere -- with BroadbandAccess

Use Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess service to create a mobile office anywhere including your home and save on gas and other commuting costs.
