I just ordered a laptop at DELL.com and planted a tree for $2:
I think it's a nice idea to offer this - it at the least shows that they care about the environment.
What do you think about this? Would you plant a tree with your next system?
For only $2?
Hmm, interesting. I suppose it's a pretty good thing. But, I'm still a bit unsure about how it will work. If you don't mind, could you explain it a bit more?
Ok, I did a little more research on it. You can read the whole thing here.
You donate $2 for laptops, $6 for desktops to plant a tree in order to neutralize emission you'll cause to power your system:
DELL together with Conservation Fund and Carbonfund.org will then plant trees with that money, currently focused on the Lower Mississippi River Valley:
A lot of play with numbers in that article, but doing anything at all makes the difference!
That's so cool! I'm very happy that Dell has chosen to do this. We are in desperate need for more trees on earth. We cut them all down! Sorry, I'm just all about trying to save the world from global warming and all that. Peace out.
Join the club!
I think it is a great thing Dell is doing this. It actually made it easier for me to chose who I'll buy my new laptop from!
Let's hope other companies start thinking about this topic too - and consumers are willing to pay a few cents more for fair, natural production!
I don't buy anything from DELL but If for some reason I would buy one I'll plant a tree too
Oh, I get it now. Well, I will never buy another Dell product again, unless I'm too lazy to build a computer, or if I'm buying it for someone else. However, it's still a nice idea and if I just happen to purchase a Dell, sure, I'll do it.
Do one more thing, you not only give money for planting a tree, but also do it yourself, I mean plant a tree by yourself, and thus help the environment of earth. When each of you reading this article do it, then there will born a lot of plants that are otherwise will not be born! Go and buy a new plant and plant it today!
That is a nice idea, the problem is that most people just don't have the big backyard to plant it in!
why not? i would plant hundreds of trees if one was $2! save our world's ass!
Agreed. Atleast those who have a backyard can do it, and those who do not have such a backyard, just pay the 2$, and you have done what you can do from your part. Let more companies come with this idea of planting, for each purchace of a computer.
What a great idea! Of course I would, we can never have too many trees!
Hmm I am building a new pc in the next couple of months, I think when it is finished I will go and buy and plant a tree. If one tree will offset the emissions caused by using the pc..then imagine if everyone who bought/built a new pc did this.
