Help Dad Be Greener This Father's DayWritten by Michelle Lam
Father's Day is a great time to help Dad be greener, and most likely he'll be grateful & proud. The carbon emissions and greenhouse gases that are produced as a result of our everyday activities (e.g. driving or turning on the A/C) contribute significantly to climate change. Global warming and rising temperatures have major consequences for the planet: droughts, severe flooding, damage to marine ecosystems, etc. With Father’s Day coming up, you can show your appreciation for Dad and be a part of the solution by giving him a CarbonFree® Certified gift or offsetting his carbon footprint. Dad can’t live without his morning cup of coffee? CarbonFree® certification partner Grounds for Change offers a variety of organic, fair trade, and shade-grown coffee blends that are sure to satisfy. Does Dad drive or use public transportation to get to work every day? Offset his vehicle for a year in support of carbon reduction projects in renewable energy, energy efficiency or reforestation. Better yet, consider a ZeroCarbonTM annual offset. You'll receive a customizable, framable certificate for offsetting with Carbonfund.org in his name. Our partners also provide great gifts for Dad. Check out Dell's FastTrack deals that can get a computer ordered and delivered in 48 hours. For books, visit Better World Books' huge selection. They'll also offset your shipping with Carbonfund.org, and every purchase helps fund global literacy programs. Make this Father's Day greener for you and Dad. Your commitment to saving the environment will make Dad proud.
