Post & Plant For A Carbon Neutral Blog

Do blogs grow on trees? My educated guess would be no, as I've never heard of a blog tree. But it now seems that blogs can help plant trees. So let's talk about outdoor decorating, mother nature style. Help us decorate a forest with more trees!


I recently received an email from a German organization called kaufDA, asking me to participate in an initiative that helps reduce carbon dioxide emissions by planting a tree for every blog that posts about it. I do get a lot of scam emails so I did a little research before starting this post. Thanks to the tireless efforts of blog owners like RecycleBills.com, who wrote many emails requesting verification of this organization's claims before joining the bandwagon, I feel safe in joining the cause. Anything that can positively affect the environment is worthwhile to me.

KaufDA's plan is to plant these blog-supported trees in the
Plumas National Forest in Northern California with the help of the Arbor Day Foundation. You can read more about why this Californian forest needs help and joining the cause by visiting http://www.kaufda.de/umwelt/co2-neutral/my-blog-is-carbon-neutral/.

The German organization's site claims that planting one tree for your blog will neutralise its carbon footprint for the next 50 years. Whether this is a scientific fact or not, I am certain that every tree that gets planted is more than worth the effort of writing about it.

Really interesting -- glad that you were able to check it out more. Sounds pretty cool though in the long run if they are legit and planting trees in CA!

Stopping by from SITS!
