Pragmatic Mom sent me this today and I dugg it, posted this and signed up to have a tree planted. Why should you care? Because a blog with 15,000 visits a month has a yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 8 lbs.
To neutralize these emissions this German company has created “My blog is carbon neutral” buttons so bloggers can show that they care about the environment and the carbon footprint of their blogs. To find out how you can participate please visit http://www.kaufda.de/umwelt/carbon-neutral/how-you-can-join
They are planting trees in cooperation with the Arbor Day Foundation in Plumas National Forest in Northern California for their project. Thousands of wildfires affected many national forests over the past ten years and 88,000 acres alone were destroyed by two fires in 2007 in Plumas. For every participating blog they plant a tree. One blog – one tree.
This is easy to do. Get your green on.
