Gift idea: Clean your Karma’a cure for green guilt
It seems like everything you do these days leaves a nasty carbon footprint on the earth. And, as Earth Day
It seems like everything you do these days leaves a nasty carbon footprint on the earth. And, as Earth Day approaches, you may want to consider atoning for some of your environmental sins. With Platypus, you can.
Through the Platypus website, you can make an eco-donation’either for yourself or on someone else’s behalf. If you donate for a friend, you will be able to send them an animate e-card notifying them about your good deed. We’re sure that you’ll walk a little lighter (and a little greener) knowing that you’ve helped the planet and that you’ve invested in some good karma.
Platypus was founded by Murray Foster. You may know him as the bassist for Great Big Sea, but he’s an environmentalist too: ‘when it comes to fighting climate change, people don’t see an obvious way to contribute," says Foster. "Platypus e-cards provide an easy way for people to do their part. Even sending one e-card is an important financial and symbolic contribution. Platypus e-cards are gifts that bring about real change.” Platypus is a not-for-profit company that uses donations to implement carbon-reducing plans and projects.
When you buy a Platypus e-card, your money will go towards eco-projects like wind farms and other carbon offsetting initiatives. For more info on Platypus, visit www.cleanyourkarma.com .
