WipeCarbon campaign designed to kick-start a million pledges from all of us which will reduce emissions of Carbon and help us to reduce the side effects in Global Warming. We are not looking for anything life changing here. Small commitments will not cost you a cent but they will make a big difference! How much does it cost to switch off your lights when you’re not using them? Or to switch off your electronics when they are not in use? These are just some of the small habits which we hope to inspire. A million of these small commitments is a big impact. Its that simple. Each pledge is one more person who cares about the planet. One more person who thinks before they buy or who considers how to reduce the energy waste in their lives. One more person who knows that global warming will not be solved by a single person but by all of us working together. This is what Wipecarbon is about. Come Let us all share and spread this beautiful message around with our loved ones and make this network a strong foundation for creating this Green Globe . Our initiative will surely make more and more people to drive towards it and take this pledge Million of these commitments will make it a ocean and create a beautiful globe joining hands with us.

If you want to save the planet, stop using the computer, television, cellphone, and every stinking electronic! =P

I second that. :-D
we need active supporters to get in here and help us. Reality Bites but we need true lovers of Nature to help this cause.
And now the true lovers ... Hummmm ... Ok I see you suggest Eco Eating by "Buy fair-trade-certified foods: It ensures proper wages and working conditions for the people who harvest and handle your food." But when it comes to the loving part "Use recycled gold for your wedding rings The mining of gold leaves environmental devastation in its wake by leaving arsenic residues and other problems associated with mining. Diamond mining also has negative environmental consequences" Who cares how much blood is spilled on the procurement of those Diamonds...... (( And can you guess where they are processed ? And who processes them, and what / if they are payed ? )) You Can and Should buy only CONFLICT FREE DIAMONDS, new or re-used..... If you think CO2 is bad try stepping on a PMN-2 (( nick named the Black-widow )) anti-personnel landmine, This is the most commonly used anti-personal landmine in conflict areas.... ((( if you want to think of it in CO2 output, think like this, We will cut down an entire forest to remove them, with huge diesel powered equipment, which can cut down and process a tree, and I have seen beautiful old growth trees geting getting chopped.... Faster then you can say those wedding vows, to return the land to a Landmine/ UXO free state... )))
We all start from somewhere. No one can save the entire world and the corruption and the blood spilt. Its all relative. But in small ways we can start and do more bit by bit. Not through websites but in reality as well. Your points are very beautiful and nicely explained but whats the crux of the matter? What are you doing to help? Cheers
The "Crux" ? Your website needs to be corrected, and I would suggest you make it, on a more "Global" bias I went to take the green quiz and I know nothing about how much trash is produced in the UK...

And maybe some transparency, where is your funding coming from, are you trying to get supporters to support Google ads ?

Now to say no one can save the entire world and the corruption, If you buy one non conflict diamond, say from Canada, and that stops the sale of just one AK-47 and several hundred 7.62 mm X 39 mm rounds, they are only a few dollars in Africa, you may of just saved several lives... Is that diamond not worth it. ??? you alone may not save the world, but you alone may save several lives by making the ethically correct choices, and in the long run it does really cost you any more to do the right thing...

Now to ask what I'm doing to help others, right now I'm working on a composite and low metal content landmine detection system, which will allow demining crews to find plastic mines with greater accuracy, and return unusable, unsafe areas of our planet into either useable farm land or it's natural state... (( which might be why I take exception to, buy fairly traded food but who cares where the diamonds come from, and there is no mention of ethically traded cotton either .. )) And while some people I have talked to, said if they put more land mines in the ground it's good for me, thinking from a business point of view, but with the millions already out there I think I have enough to keep me plugging away for the next 1000 years....

Oh and yes on the environmental issues I use CFL's, in fact the only incandescent light bulbs in my house are in the Microwave 15 watt , the oven 40 watt and fridge 15 watt, I didn't even grumble about the cost of several Metal Halide fixtures to reduce my total power load, I get great enjoyment from gardening and growing and eating my own food, I actually give about 80 to 90 % of what I grow away, but I do have a huge garden, I'm starting to generate my own solar power, I buy conflict free diamonds, I don't use new tanalite capacitors in my electronic designs, I will use salvaged from scrap ones (( To see why click here )) And my christmas lights are LED and they are also Solar powered (( yes they are on every night all year round but I don't have street lighting where I live )), And I recycle about 50 to 70 computer, monitors,printers a year to give to people that need them, Ya, Ok every one in my area take's there broken treasures to my house for them to get reused ...
wow good. Thanks for the hints. I think we need to update the site. I will try to do something. As for the funding, its my company who started it. Its philanthropic and we dont intend to do business. For ads! We just want people to be aware of this and register by partaking in the questionnaire and do what it says as well. Thats all. Anyways I read you are from Alberta. Canada. I am from India name is Shaz. I work and am trying our best to make this website a global phenomenon but about carbon in India. We will take your advice if you give us some valid and helpful suggestions. Thanks and bye
For all your big talks how many of you have signed on and pledged to do what it says on that site? Please tell me since I am curious to know.
