Plant a Billion Trees

April 5, 2008

I've been feeling the need to plant some trees to offset my recent trip to Austin and to make up for an upcoming trip to my parents' place. And the Nature Conservancy just happens to have sent me an e-mail today about a new Plant a Billion Trees campaign for re-foresting the Atlantic forest of Brazil. Based on the various carbon offset programs — though this isn't marketed as a carbon offset, it essentially serves that purpose — $25 seemed like an appropriate amount for these two trips.
