Every little bit helps....
“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. They 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!
All I had to do was write a short blog post about their programme “My blog is carbon neutral” and include one of the buttons below on my site (ideally in the sidebar). Send the link to your blog to CO2email@example.com and they plant a tree for me, neutralising the carbon dioxide emissions of my blog. The trees will be planted in the spring of 2010 by the Arbor Day Foundation.
If anything it has really got me thinking about some great ways the family and I can do our part. Wednesdays are always our down days and have nothing planned. Except today we have a dentist visit.
Staring today we are going to do something extra for the environment every wednesday. Coincidently today is also trash pick up day. Perfect!
Hmmm what should we do extra today?
I'll let you know at the end of the day...
