My Blog is Carbon Neutral
Before we get to the post part of this post, let me tell you about Sarah Wylie's fab contest she's having over at Sarah with a Chance to celebrate her soon to be published status. Go on over and check it out.
And now on with the post. Summer at …and this time, concentrate recently posted about Green for her A-Z blogging challenge and Michele at Southern City Mysteries had a great post about what Green means for blogs. Bottom line is that blogging creates carbon dioxide.
Check out Michele’s post for the lovely picture explaining just how much. But there is something we can do about that. Plant a tree. Simple really. Click here to find out more about the program “My blog is carbon neutral” and grab a button like the one in my sidebar. If you don’t feel like clicking through, here’s the deal from their website on how you can participate in this great program:
Just write a short blog post about our programme “My blog is carbon neutral” and include one of the buttons below on your site (ideally in the sidebar). Send the link to 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 the spring of 2010 by the Arbor Day Foundation.
Just a few easy steps to make it green:
Write a blog post about the initiative + insert your favourite button
E-mail the link to your post to CO2email@example.com
We plant a tree for your blog in Plumas’!
And that’s it. Like I said, it’s simple really. And a really small thing to do to make this place a little greener. We can all handle a little more green, right?
