According to a study by Alexander Wissner-Gross, PhD, physicist at Harvard University and environmental activist, an average website causes about 0.02g (0,0008oz.) of carbon dioxide for each visit. Assuming an average blog gets 15,000 visits a month, it has yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 3,6kg (8lb.)
From the picture above you can see that the CO2 emissions of a blog can be offset by one tree. No need to plant a tree in your yard. Join the program created by Germany called "My blog is Carbon Neutral". Write a post about the program on your blog and follow the simple steps below. In turn the "Arbor Day Foundation" , a non profit organization will plant a tree for you in Plumas National Forest in Northern California.
Just a few easy steps to make it green:
- Write a blog post about the initiative + insert your favourite button
- E-mail the link to your post to CO2firstname.lastname@example.org
- We plant a tree for your blog in Plumas’!
