Going Carbon Neutral
As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, and to demonstrate that taking responsibility for one's greenhouse gas emissions is straightforward and inexpensive, we have committed ourselves to helping to set the standard for taking action against this threat.
We are taking responsibility for our impact on the environment and are working to neutralize those effects. We are reducing our emissions of greenhouse gases, investing in renewable energy projects, planting trees and doing other environmental work, to lead to zero impact.
Earth Friendly Network LLC has committed to offsetting 100% of the electricity use, through the purchase of a 50/50 Blend of Wind & Farm Methane Projects, through Native Energy
You can do it too!
It's easy to go carbon neutral - all it takes is a few simple steps.
After you've begun to offset your own emissions, encourage friends and family to do the same. You can even purchase carbon offsets as gifts for other people. Also, choose to support businesses that are either carbon neutral, or offer carbon neutral products or services. If the businesses you are dealing with aren't yet carbon neutral, ask them to consider it. Finally, write a letter to your political leaders and let them know you've taken responsibility for your greenhouse gas emissions, and encourage them to enact legislation making it easy for everyone to do so.
