I have 40,692 visitors on my blog till date. It didn't seem to make a big difference till today.
But, today it does.
All information is given in the link: http://www.kaufda.de/umwelt/carbon-neutral/1-tree-1-blog-how-it-works/
I must admit one of the main inspirations for writing this post was the cool "Carbon-Neutral" logo I could put up.
Anyway, moving on:
15,000 visits a month on a blog => 3.6 kg of Carbon dioxide emission
( an average website causes about 0.02g carbon dioxide emission each visit)
A tree however absorbs 5 kg of CO2 per year. So, planting a tree results in a deficit of 1.4Kg of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere on my blog (as I can safely say that the number of visits per year on my blog will not cross 15,000 => this is again going by the count of my blog for last 4 years). A small step in helping cleaning up the environment. Afterall, in the first place, the environment got polluted because of us.
Am I getting the message across ?
