Carbon Neutral Confirmation


Back at the end of July I announced in this post that Inspire Bohemia would soon be going carbon neutral! Well, I finally received a response to my e-mail submission confirming that Inspire Bohemia is now carbon neutral and has been added to the list of participants. Basically what this means is that the Make It Green project and Arbor Day Foundation will be planting a tree in Inspire Bohemia's name in the Plumas National Forest of Northern California in order to neutralize the carbon dioxide emissions produced by the Inspire Bohemia blog for the next 50 years! Cool huh? How do they figure one tree will be enough to neutralize the carbon dioxide emissions of one blog for 50 years? Well, check out my blog post from July here for more details, or just take a look at this chart:

(calculated based on a blog with 15,000 visits per month)

Woohoo! Cool right? Here is the confirmation letter I received:

Hi Catherine,

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!

Best,

Melanie
"Make it green"-team

And here is my blog on the participant list, wheeee:
