Very Altruistic Little Site

The above link is to a blog that is self promoting itself through donations to CarbonFund.org to each blog that links to its site. Sort of like the socially responsible marketing plan. In his own words:
According to Technorati, DeepMarket has cracked the 200 sites linking to it level. That equates to 200 tons of carbon offsets over at CarbonFund.org.
So, remember - for every link back to DeepMarket - we will donate an offset one ton of carbon over at CarbonFund.org.
This probably pales in comparison to the very altruistic little site and loves to be talked about - Linkie Winkie. Enough said.

I had the link already to CarbonFund.org in my favorites and I thought I had at least one more site that did similar projects but could not find it. But anyway this is a chance to discuss plans to reduce or sequester CO2 in the atmosphere. In their words:
Carbonfund.org reduces the threat of climate change by making it easy and affordable for any individual or business to reduce their carbon footprint and support climate-friendly projects. Please take action today!

They are working with three Offset Projects. The first is paying for and expanding Renewable Energy, which has a strong emphasis on wind power. The second is Energy Efficiency and it appears they only have one project of this (Chicago Climate Exchange Credits). Maybe not as much demand from the customers (so far) for more choices. And lastly the Reforestation projects that reduce the amount of CO2 in the air by hopefully the process of Sequestration.

And lastly be sure and check out the Carbon Calculator. It is good to have your electricity and gas bills handy to put into the calculations.
