Dell Customers Can Offset Carbon Impact

  • March 26, 2008
An extension of Dell's "Plant a Tree for Me" program, this new option lets customers contribute $2 for a laptop and $6 for a desktop to offset the impact of the electricity required to power the machines.

Contributions will go toward the planting of trees that absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Dell partners with The Conservation Fund and the, non-profit organizations that plant trees in sustainably managed reforestation projects.

Customers can donate through a retail agreement Dell has with Sam's Club at

Dell launched "Plant a Tree for Me" for customers in January 2007. The company recently joined The Conservation Fund, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and other commercial partners in dedicating 158 acres of forestland in East Texas, one of five tree-planting projects funded through the program.
