I'm Dreaming of a Green Christmas: Send Friends and Family the Gift of Green this Holiday Season

Share Article

Green Mountain Energy is offering a unique "Gift of Green" this holiday season through their BeGreen website, which launched last month to help fight global warming. These holiday gifts are sent to friends and family in an effort to help save the environment, literally one tree at a time, through sequestration in the Koontenai National Forrest in Montana. Sequestration is one of the ways to combat the growing carbon dioxide emissions problems that we face in the United Sates.

Green Mountain Energy Company, the nation's leading retail provider of cleaner electricity products is pleased to offer consumers an environmentally friendly holiday gift this season. A Gift of Green is a simple way to honor friends and family by helping to plant more trees, helping to offset some of the carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to global warming.

About the Gift of Green

  • For each Gift of Green you buy, one more tree gets planted.
  • An average tree will absorb more than 650 pounds of CO2 over its lifetime - as much as not driving your car about 740 miles.
  • The recipient of your environmentally friendly gift will get a plantable ornament that will grow into cilantro plus a card telling them about the environmental benefits of their tree.
  • It's a great affordable gift for you and for the earth at only $9.95!

Each of these green gifts provides a tree which will be planted in the once-majestic Kootenai National Forest in Montana. For this reforestation project, Green Mountain Energy Company is partnering with American Forests to plant Ponderosa Pine trees to help the forest recover from large forest fires in 2000. In addition to absorbing CO2, the new trees will also help restore the wildlife habitat that was destroyed, and return the forest to its former glory.
