One Blog ~ One Tree

I was contacted by a group working on an initiative called "Make It Green!". Their goal is to contribute in reducing the carbon footprint by raising awareness of the severe environmental damage caused by carbon emissions.. and the Internet is one of the culprits! Did you know a blog with 15,000 visits a month has a yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 8lb?!

ME NEITHER!

carbon neutral coupons and shopping with kaufDA.de

So how exactly do they intend neutralize my blog's carbon footprint? They are planting trees (in cooperation with the Arbor Day Foundation) in Plumas National Forest in Northern California, that's how. Thousands of wildfires burned down many national forests over the past ten years and 88.000 acres of Plumas' were destroyed by two fires in 2007. To help replanting they need the support of bloggers all over the world. For every participating blog they will plant a tree.

One blog - one tree.. how cool is that??
