Offset your Techy Lifestyle

These days it is almost impossible to go an hour, let alone a day without checking your email. And every household has  at least one computer if not a variety of other electronics. Including a printer, laptop, server etc. I'm sure you  know that all these products add to the overwhelming Co2 emissions problem. For this reason Dell has come up with a "Plant a Tree for Me" program to help offset your home or office's electronics.

1. Write a list of all the electronics you own (they do not have to be Dell products).
2. Visit this website 
3. Choose donate and select from a list of products. Dell will then calculate the carbon emission of that product and the cost of offsetting it. 
4. They will then send 100% of your donation to partner organizations that facilitate the planting of trees.

Now get off the internet and go for a walk outside!
