Carbon Neutral Blogs!

Good morning! A very early post this week before I zip off to a recycling and waste management show for work...! Before I go, I wanted to tell you about Carbon Neutral Blogs - a completely free initiative with the aim of helping to make as many blogs carbon neutral as possible by planting a tree on your behalf.

From their website:
'The UNFCC calculates that each tree helps to remove around 10kg of carbon from the atmosphere every year. This means that by adding the button, and having a tree planted, your blog will become carbon neutral, moreover, it will actually be carbon positive! In fact, if all 200m blogs in the world signed up to the initiative, rather than contributing 700,000 tonnes of carbon, the blogosphere would actually help remove 2.1m tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere each year!!'

The trees are currently planted trees in four forests in the US, where there is the need for reforestation as a result of global climate change, drought and forest fires:
- San Bernardino National Forest, the Butler II burn.
- Plumas National Forest, the Moonlight fire.
- Huron-Manistee National Forest, Kirtland Warbler nesting habitat restoration.
- Ocala National Forest, longleaf pine restoration.

Sound good? It's really really simple to join in...
1. Add the button from this page to your blog’s sidebar, header or footer
2. Write a new blog post about signing up to the initiative (this is mine!)
3. Email to tell them about it
4. They'll send you an email back to confirm when they've planted your tree!

Let me know what you think - I'd love to know if you've done it too!

Right! I'd better make sure I've packed my crochet bag! Have a lovely week and I'll be back reading everyone's blogs on Thursday!

Hey, your site seems lacking in SEO. I can see some pretty major flaws, care for me to comment on this issue?
"We hate spam as much as you do" - what the hell is that supposed to mean? What if I love spam, does this mean you love it too?
Hey, what's the best way to start blogging right away? Like, without any difficult setups.
This page rocks, keep up the good work.
