Happy Earth Day! It also happens to be my oldest daughter's birthday - fourteen years ago today I became a mom. But, I digress...
To celebrate Earth Day, I'm taking part in a program to neutralize my blog's carbon emissions. It's easy and fun - I hope you'll take part too!
Step #1 - Click the leaf logo above, which will take you to a website that explains the program.
Step #2 - Copy the html-code for one of the buttons and paste it on your sidebar. Blog about the program to increase awareness and participation.
Step #3 - Email the link to your post to CO2firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step #4 - The Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree for your blog in Plumas National Forest in Northern California.
What a great way to celebrate Earth Day - I feel greener already!
UPDATE: Hooray! I just received the following email concerning my Carbon Neutral Blog (that's a lot of seedlings - wow!):
thank you so much for participating in our initiative and making your blog carbon neutral! Your tree will be planted this month by the Arbor Day Foundation. The scheduled start plant date was Monday, April 19 and the trees will be planted by a contracted crew. The roads are being plowed, all contracts solidified, and twelve shipments of 150,000 seedling each are being assembled. We thank you for the support!
There are still some trees looking for a sponsor. So if you know some people who have a blog or website, pass it on and we'll make their blogs carbon neutral too!
