A tiny little green card caught my attention at the coffee house yesterday:
First you stopped littering. Then you started recycling. Now become NET GREEN. Offset your green house gas emissions today. Be part of the solution.
This was a card for gwef.org. A local area group helping people reduce their carbon loads on the environment. Here is an excerpt from their website.
The Global Warming Reality
We all produce green house gas (GHG) emissions – it is simply a part of existing as an individual or a business in our society today. As people become more aware of the global warming issue, however, many are looking for a way to become a part of the solution in their every day lives. Unfortunately, the issue can be daunting, leaving many feeling helpless to make a difference with their limited resources and time. That is, until now…
Families in the U.S. could be neutral now for as little as $100 to $200 per year offsetting 10 to 20 tons of GHG ( Greenhouse Gas) emissions TODAY* If your yearly payment was $150.00, that would be just $12.50 per month or $.42 cents per day. *Based on average emissions per person.
