"my blog is carbon neutral” is an initiative, originally started in Germany by the “Make it Green” programme, that has the goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. We plant a tree for your blog and thereby neutralise your blog’s carbon footprint for the next 50 years! Everyone can make a small contribution to the environment. Every tree counts!
To offset the CO2 impact, German Make it Green (Mach Grün) has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to help reforest Northern California's devastated Plumas National Forest. Beginning in spring 2010, the Arbor Day Foundation will aid in replanting 5,500 acres of the 88,000 acres of the forest that burned 2007. And you can help.
For each participating blog (participating means spreading the word as I'm doing here), the Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree. How will a tree make a difference to your blog's carbon footprint? Glad you asked. A single tree can absorb the CO2 emissions of one blog for fifty years!
Every tree counts. To participate, and please participate, visit Make it Green's Carbon Neutral Program site.
