What's The Diff?

The things Quicken Loans team members care about and want to share with the world

Carbon neutrality for a day from the Quicken Loans blog & Brighter Planet

Quicken Loans blog: Kelly LaVaute is giving you carbon offsets this year!

Hey, I got you guys a present for the holidays! Ya know, ’cause I love ya.

Here it is.

What is this, you say? Kelly is giving me a link for Chrismahanukwanzakah? No, silly. I’m giving you carbon neutrality for a day. You gotta click on it. Fancy, huh? Better than that pony you asked for, right?

I first found this lovely little gem from Zeldman.com, who "gave" carbon offsets to all his blog subscribers. That list includes myself, so I signed up and now I can give it to you.

Here’s the deets from the company that started all this, Brighter Planet:

The One Day campaign is a small way to show your support to fight climate change. For every participant, Brighter Planet will donate 136 pounds of offsets — the equivalent of one day’s worth of CO2 emissions (based on the estimated average American footprint of 24.78 tons). The more people that give the gift of carbon neutrality for one day, the better. Thousands of gift recipients and givers will know that the climate movement is spreading far beyond the typical “environmental” realm and into the norm. All that Brighter Planet asks in return is that you consider conserving during the holidays.

After you sign up (takes 2 seconds and I have received no spam crap from them at all), you’ll get an e-mail and then YOU can give carbon neutrality away to all the people you love too…or maybe just all your blog subscribers.

So, enjoy. I didn’t wrap it or anything and I’m barely getting this to you before year end, but it still counts, right?

Ok, what did you get me? A pony??!
