My blog is carbon neutral

I should blog about this 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately sometimes thing do happen out of our control. :(

I received an email from a team in Germany who is working for an initiative called "Make it green!" end of last month. Their goal is to contribute in reducing the carbon footprint by raising awareness of the severe environmental damage caused by carbon emissions. Do you know that, a blog with 15,000 visits a month has a yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 8lb? In order to neutralize the blog's carbon footprint, they are planting trees in cooperation with the Arbor Day Foundation in Plumas National Forest in Northern California. Thousands of wildfires burned down many national forests over the past ten years and 88.000 acres of Plumas' were destroyed by two fires in 2007. For every participating blog a tree is planted. One blog - one tree. Click here if you want to know how it works.

Whenever we pass through this particular place on the way home from my parents house, for sure Lynn will ask me "Mama, why here got so many trees?". I certainly would not want her to ask me this "Mama, why here got no more trees?" one day. If you would like to participate in this project too, please click here.

Alice Law - Hahaha! I don't really care about the 1000 visitors a month. Just thought of planting 1 tree just for me make me feeling real good about it. :)

Cleffairy - Don't think it is a hoax. But yeah, we receive no proof if they have planted the tree.
