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.
