Arlington, MA (PRWEB) June 20, 2006
Blogpire Productions, a collection of 14 lifestyle blogs ranging from Really Natural (http://www.reallynatural.com) to Single Serve Coffee (http://www.singleservecoffee.com), announces that it will buy enough Green Tags, also called renewable energy credits, from the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, to offset the environmental impact from its hosting and computer operations for the coming year.
The production of traditional electricity, which relies on the burning of fossil fuels, is cheaper than producing energy from renewable sources, but it doesn't take into account the long-term costs of air pollution and health problems, which result when carbon dioxide and other pollutants are emitted into the air.
Green tags are an investment in the production of renewable energy sources through wind and solar power. Using clean renewable energy reduces emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. By purchasing green tags, Blogpire Productions hopes to lessen our dependence on burning fossil fuels.
"Doing our part to reduce the environmental impact of our computer operations fits with our personal interests and helps us set the tone for how we are going to run our business." says Jay Brewer, founder of Blogpire Productions.
The Blogpire and the people who write for it care deeply about the environment. From the Really Natural blog (http://www.reallynatural.com), which covers organic foods and household items, to GPS Lodge (http://www.gpslodge.com), which explores the world with the help of global positioning systems, and Single Serve Coffee (http://www.singleservecoffee.com), which regularly reviews and supports organic and Fair Trade coffee, the Blogpire's group of bloggers are committed to the environment and reducing their impact on the environment.
"We are all interested in preserving our environment, so running our blogs on renewable energy was the right thing for us to do," says Brewer. "More renewable energy use means less fossil fuel use, less air pollution and a more sustainable future for us and our planet."
