Green-blog.org is a multi-author blog site and forum that provides useful information and interesting discussion about environmental issues. The site is developing a strong and dedicated user base who provide lots of great content. The site just announced a tree planting and membership drive program.
Green-blog will plant 1 tree for each 100 users that join the site. Currently, the site has about 75 users. That’s only 25 users away from planting a tree. The trees will be planted by Tree-Nation.com who is supported by the United Nations Environment Programme.
