Riva Bella takes part of the initiative “My blog is carbon neutral”

How does a tree compensates the carbon footprint of a blog?

Does my blog actually produce carbon dioxide?

According to a study by Alexander Wissner-Gross, PhD, physicist at Harvard University and environmental activist, an average website causes about 0.02g (0,0008oz.) of carbon dioxide for each single visit. If we consider an average blog gets around 15,000 visits a month, its yearly carbon dioxide emissions are of 3,6kg (8lb.). The main explanation to this figures is the important energy usage from computers, servers, and their cooling systems – consuming lots of electricity.

If your blog has more than 15,000 visitors a month, do not hesitate to e-mail us at We will make sure we take care of your blog too.

How much carbon dioxide does a tree absorb?

This is a hard question to answer. Each tree has a different capacity of absorption. It highly depends on its location, its variety, its age, the amount of water it can access, as well as the composition of soil.

Nevertheless, there has been different calculations of the absorption capacity of an average tree. Values go from 10 to 30kg absorbed every year, that is 20 to 70 lb. As it is certain that it absorbs much little quantities in its youth, it has also been demonstrated the quantities varies according to the tree’s age – most of them see their absorption capacity decrease after they reach 18 years old.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) assumes a yearly absorption of one tree of approximately 10kg (20lb.) carbon dioxide emissions. We have decided, in a very conservative way, to take a minimal absorption value of 5kg (11lb.) for our initiative. In this way, we make sure every blog has a neutral carbon footprint !

A blog gets its carbon footprint covered by a single tree !

One tree neutralises the carbon dioxide emissions of your blog

As demonstrated in the above calculation, the atmosphere can be relieved by an average of 5kg (11lb.) carbon dioxide every year by planting one tree. An average blog causes 3.6kg (8lb.) of carbon dioxide emissions. Consequently, a tree neutralises the carbon dioxide emissions of a blog. Since a tree lives for an average of 50 years, carbon dioxide emissions of your blog can be completely neutralised for this time period.
