14/4/10 Updates .....
Received an email from Christin Gericke on the 13/4/10 mentioning they will plant a tree for my blog starting 19/4/10. Yay !
Do you bring your own recycle bag when you goes shopping? Shame to said that I do not always practise that but hubby strongly believe that less plastic bags will help the world greener! He ALWAYS said NO to plastic bags !
As for me? I'm going to do my part here by making my blog goes GREEN ! According to a study by Alexander Wissner-Gross, PhD, physicist at Harvard University and environmental activist, an average website causes about 0.02g of carbon dioxide for each visit. Assuming an average blog gets 15,000 visits a month, it had yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 3.6kg. The atmosphere can be relieved by an average of 5kg carbon dioxide every year by planting one tree. Consequently, a tree neutralises the carbon dioxide emissions of a blog ! Since a tree lives for an average of 50 years, carbon dioxide emissions of your blog can be completely neutralised for this time period.
Just write a short blog post about this programme "My Blog is Carbon Neutral" and include one of the buttons on your site (ideally the sidebar). Send the link of your blog to
CO2firstname.lastname@example.org and we plant a tree for you, neutralising the carbon dioxide emissions of your blog. The trees will be planted in Plumas in the spring of 2010 by the Arbor Day Foundation.
