Dell's Tree Project Goes to Europe

Susan Hall

As promised, Dell has brought its Plant a Tree for Me project to Europe, allowing consumers to pay an extra 1 ($2 US) per laptop and 3 ($6) per desktop to plant a tree to offset the carbon generated by electricity produced to power the computer.

 

It's part of a larger environmental policy by Dell to cut its carbon footprint, according to vnunet.com.

 

Dell ranked fourth out of 14 PC makers in Greenpeace's recently published Green Electronics Guide.

 

Blogger James Murray said the campaign likely would get mixed reviews, combining what he called "innovative environmental proposals with some rather vague green commitments."
