Let Ixpo Plant A Tree For You

Wednesday, March 16, 2011


Every blog that attracts 15,000 hits per month generates on average around 3.5kg of carbon every year from computer usage, electricity hours and server cooler systems. Although 3.5kg’s a year doesn’t sound like a lot, when you consider that last February The Sunday Times reported that there was around 200m blogs in the world, it means that with an average readership of 15,000 hits per month blogs alone contribute around 700,000 tonnes of carbon to the atmosphere every year.

Now Ixpo has set up an initiative to try and do something about it, and it couldn’t be easier to join in. All you have to do is add one of the ‘Carbon Positive Blog’ button’s to your page, and Ixpo will plant a tree for you. That’s it! You don’t have to make a donation or pay a penny, just add the button and Ixpo will plant your tree!
