Carbon Netural Games

Carbonrally is a new diversion that might be fun to play with friends or neighbors during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday or use as a conversation starter when the football conversation languishes in minutiae that no one but your older brother and father-in-law either understand or care. We can't be serious all the time, can we?

There's a challenge that's easy--the current one is to inflate car tire pressure to the correct proper inflation, a good idea for everyone driving to and from grandmother's house, anyway. Savings estimated to be 29 pounds of carbon a month. Other activities include using no new grocery bags for a month, giving up bottled water, changing out incandescent light bulbs, or reducing automobile use. Things you, my dear readers are already doing.

But, it looks like a good way to start a conversation with others who may not be aware how easy it is to make a difference. Membership is small right now, around 400, so a couple of you with large teams could sweep.

Make me sustainable is a similar website with more emphasis on social networking than the team competition aspect. Think Facebook for the environment.

Hey Cara,

Thanks for your post about Carbonrally and for spreading the word! We are small, but posts like yours are really helping the Rally get off the ground!

Best regards,
