I was recently contacted by Green Gestures, an organization’s who’s mission is “to reduce paper consumption (and paper waste) by creating a more sustainable way to shop.” One of the ways they do this is by planting trees to offset the CO2 output in the environment. And, the way the spread the word is by planting a tree for every blog post about their cause. I think it’s a lovely idea and I am happy to participate. Here is a bit more info and a link to their site where you can help out!!
