Use your blog to plant a tree

This is an idea by Dove Conviene in collaboration with I plant a tree. And here’s what to do: 1) Post on your blog about this project and say your blog is CO2 neutral. 2) choose a widget, and embed it in a well visible position on your blog 3) write to with your post’s link 4) a tree will be planted to neutralize your blog’s carbon print.
Here’s why a blog = a tree: according to dr. Alexander Wissner-Gross, environmental activist and physicist in Harvard, a website produces an average of g 0,02 of CO2 for each visit. Assuming 15.000 page views per month, this makes a total of kg 3,6 of CO2 p.a., and this is mainly due to the servers. How much CO2 can a tree absorb? Well, this depends on many factors, however the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) calculates that a tree can absorb an average of kg 10 of CO2 p.a. – let’s conservatively say Kg 5 per tree per year. Well, one tree will ensure your blog 50 years of zero impact. So pls, ACT NOW.
