Blog to Plant a Tree for Free
Thanks to Best Travel Pictures in the World, I’m about to get a tree planted for my blog. The latest post there pointed me to this initiative to reforest the 5,500 acres of Plumas National Forest in California with 792,000 trees by the Arbor Day Foundation. The area at Plumas was devastated by fire in 2007 and replanting has started this spring.
The “My blog is carbon neutral” initiative, was originally started in Germany by the “Make it Green” programme, that has the goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. A tree is planted for each blog that participates thereby neutralising the blog’s carbon footprint for the next 50 years! Every tree counts! Everyone can make a small contribution to the environment and you can too.
Just write a short blog post about the programme and include one of the buttons. You can get to them by clicking on my button above or in my side bar. Send the link to your blogpost to CO2firstname.lastname@example.org and they will plant a tree for you, neutralising the carbon dioxide emissions of your blog.
