Green Mountain Energy Earth Day Commitment


"Austin, TX (Vocus/PRWEB ) April 22, 2009 -- Green Mountain Energy Company is encouraging people to take action and make an even greater difference this Earth Day. Today, Texas' only electricity provider dedicated to cleaner energy launched the first "My Earth Day Action" campaign.

In honor of Earth Day 2009, Green Mountain is encouraging participants to take action to help the environment by making a personal resolution. For each action chosen through, Green Mountain will plant a tree -- up to a total of 5,000 - in a forest restoration project in Florida. Green Mountain's carbon offset division, BeGreen, has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to support the tree plantings.

"At Green Mountain, every day is Earth Day because our company was founded with a mission that's centered on helping to protect the environment," said Gillan Taddune, chief environmental officer, Green Mountain Energy Company. "We are committed to helping others learn how they, too, can easily live Earth Day every day and make an even greater difference. This campaign is about all of the little steps each one of us can take as individuals that can, collectively, add up to a big impact for the environment."

The My Earth Day Action campaign begins today, Earth Day, April 22, 2009. Participants can make a resolution anytime between April 22 and the end of 2009, with up to 5,000 resolutions submitted being recognized with a tree planting. " : Source Link
