It's Easy Being Green

Carbonfund.org is a nonprofit based in Silver Springs, Md., that teams with businesses to support carbon-reducing initiatives. Tech companes currently partnering with the group include WebEx, which will sponsor a tree if you sign up for a free trial and host two meetings with at least two participants (www.webex.com/tree), and Dell, which is participating in the "Plant a Tree for Me" program.
Through this program, a customer or corporate donation of $2 per notebook and $6 per desktop computer will offset carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to powering the average computer for three years. Dell donates 100 percent of the donations received to The Conservation Fund and Carbonfund.org to be used to plant trees.
