plant a tree with your blog/website


 TEA TIME!!!

Tea for the day: warm green tea from a Korean/Japanese restaurant by my workplace. What **tea** would you like to have today?

As the title of the post points out to (and speaking of "green" tea LOL), there is a program out there called "Make it Green" that claims to plant a tree for your blog. The idea started in Germany and it aims to "neutralize" the carbon footprint produced by each blog by planting a tree for that blog. Click here for more information about how it works.

It is indeed a small contribution but if we each do it, it could hopefully turn to something bigger; we won't get anywhere with that sort of logic which is unfortunately quite prevalent these days.

To make your blog "green", you need to write a short blog post about the initiative (please see the link I had just shared above), choose a button for your blog (that looks like the image posted here except that there are other buttons and colors as well), and email the link to your post to: CO2-neutral@kaufda.de, and a tree will be planted for you!

From your Tea Mate,
Reema B. :-)

  1. I suppose you were not kidding when you said that you have not updated the blog for a while.

    I am guessing it would be correct to assume that you are interested in environmental causes?

    Brother Irving has like a gazillion friends on FB, couldnt figure out which one are you.

  2. hahah yes, it has indeed been a while!! I finally posted something today if you'd like to check it out ;-) (and of course, I was also not kidding when I said how much I enjoy your blog). I thank you so much for stopping by my blog, however, you did not mention what **tea** you wanted to be served! XD

    Well, topics in the **Tea House** range from philanthropy/activism (which can include environmental issues), to spirituality, personal reflections, poetry/short stories (which is a recent addition), and--of course--**tea**! :-P
