Happy Earth Day, everybuddy!
In honor of Earth Day today, we’re following our furiend, Sparkle’s, lead and participating in the “My Blog is Carbon Neutral” initiative started by a site from Germany called Mach’s Grün, or “Make It Green” in English. “Make It Green” is planting trees for free to erase the carbon footprint that blogs create. We don’t know much about carbon footprints and we didn’t even know our blog had one, but we think planting trees is a good thing!!
“Make It Green” will plant one tree for every blog that participates in the “My Blog is Carbon Neutral” initiative. The trees are being planted in the Plumas National Forest in Northern California by the “Arbor Day Foundation.” Back in 2007, there were a couple of huge fires in the forest that destroyed 88,000 acres of trees!! Whoa!! That’s a whole lotta trees that were lost!!! The goal is to help reforest 5,500 acres of the Plumas National Forest with 792,000 trees. Planting began this week.
Now, here’s how you can participate in the “My Blog is Carbon Neutral” initiative and get a tree planted to help erase your blog’s carbon footprint. All you gotta do is write a short blog post about this program, put a carbon neutral badge on your blog (you can choose from a bunch), and send the “Make It Green” people an email with a link to your blog post.
So c’mon!! Make your blog carbon neutral, too!!!
