Lose 30 Pounds with Facebook and Native Energy

Take part in the “weight loss” challenge from Native Energy and you can lose 30 pounds while helping to build the greenest town in America.

“Our ‘weight-loss’ challenge is a simple, fun way to get people thinking about how

they can easily join in the fight against global warming.”

-Regina Farrell, Native Energy


Native Energy, picked by TreeHugger as the best carbon offset provider, is taking off 30 pounds of CO2 for every person who becomes a fan on their Facebook page. In addition, every answer you post to questions on the page through 9/15 will get another 30 pound offset. That’s enough to offset the same amount of carbon released by the average American driving back and forth to work in one day.

The reductions will come from the Greensburg Wind Farm in Kansas:

On May 4, 2007, a massive tornado leveled Greensburg, Kansas, destroying 95% of the homes and leaving a path of devastation 2 miles wide. The residents not only committed to rebuild, they are rebuilding as “the greenest town in America.”

Here’s the link again: Native Energy Facebook Page. The “weight loss” challenge runs from now until September 30, 2009.

Charter sponsors of the Greensburg Wind Farm include Ben & Jerry’s, Clif Bar, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Stonyfield Farm and Brighter Planet.

About Native Energy: The Company helps its clients design customized strategies to assess and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Customers can help build specific Native American and community-based renewable energy and other carbon reduction projects with strong social and environmental benefits. In addition, the Company sells vintage carbon offsets and certified RECs. Native Americans own a significant interest in the Company, enabling tribes to share in the success of the Company.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
