Greenwala Initiates a Million-Tree Challenge to Celebrate Earth Month

Greenwala Will Plant a Tree for Every New Member Who Joins This Year, With a Goal of Creating a Million-Member Community Engaged in the Green Revolution

LAKE FOREST, CA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2009) - Greenwala, the green social network, is embarking on an ambitious effort to combat deforestation by planting a tree for every member who joins its network this year. Its goal is to plant one million trees and create a million-member community engaged in the green revolution.

"In 1970, we celebrated the first Earth Day," said Rajeev Kapur, founder and chief wala, Greenwala. "By 2007, the world recognized that one day set aside to honor the environment was not enough and created Earth Month. In the same spirit, we recognize that there is strength in numbers. The individuals who make up the Greenwala community can collectively influence how brands design products, politicians shape policy and families teach their children about sustainability. My vision is for Greenwala to exceed one million members by the end of this year. Our legacy will be the steady growth of one million planted trees combating deforestation of the rainforests around the world."

Beta-launched in November 2008, the www.greenwala.com community is made of people who help others live a greener lifestyle by sharing their knowledge, green experiences and actions with friends, family and the world. Greenwala members can read expert articles, post comments and blogs, join or start groups, find new friends and more.

Along with announcing its million-tree challenge, Greenwala also is launching enhancements to its network. These developments thrust the beta network into the next stage of development including:

--  A brand new design
--  Facebook Connect integration
--  Improved user profiles and messaging
--  A news feed
--  A marketplace and classifieds
--  Events, groups, videos, blogs with threaded comments
--  And several more features on the way
