Giving back to the planet
Posted by Jordan Tama

Adding to Heather's excellent suggestions, another way to do good during the holidays is to make a green investment that offsets your annual energy use. provides a good overview of the benefits of going "carbon neutral," and a New York Times article explains some of the ways to do it. One option is to invest in planting trees through The Conservation Fund. Another way is to invest in renewable energy projects, as TerraPass does. You'll be surprised at how inexpensively you can compensate for your greenhouse gas pollution.

Since it can take many years for investments in trees or clean energy projects to bear fruit, reducing energy use is still essential to prevent climate change in the near future. So we should all follow Heather's lead and buy a hybrid next time we're in the market for a car.

Thank you for your sharing! I like i very much!

Thank you for taking the time to publish this information very useful!I'm still waiting for some interesting thoughts from your side in your next post thanks.

Thanks for writing, I truly enjoyed reading your newest post. I think you should post more often, you obviously have natural ability for blogging!

TerraPass has grown steadily over the past few years. We have a small staff in an office near the Bay Bridge in downtown San Francisco. More importantly, we've helped individuals and businesses to reduce over 1 billion pounds of carbon dioxide.

That was a great piece of information., I enjoyed reading it...
