Help Family and Friends Lower Their Carbon Footprint This Holiday Season With Save the Planet and Win

Stocking Stuffers That Make a Difference, Free AddOffset Cards Spread Environmental Awareness and Can Be Redeemed for Free Carbon Offsets

BERKELEY, CA--(Marketwire - December 16, 2008) - Save the Planet and Win, an environmental social network that lets everyone lower their carbon footprint in an online community of like-minded members, has announced a great way to help spread environmental awareness and reduce global warming this holiday season -- by distributing free carbon offset gift cards to family and friends. AddOffset cards are available to any new or existing Save the Planet member at no cost, and shipping is completely free too.

Log on or register at Save the Planet and Win to request your free AddOffset cards. You'll receive a box of 100 carbon offset cards in time to tuck into a stocking, hand out at a holiday party, or insert into holiday cards. Gift card recipients simply visit Save the Planet and Win's website, enter the redemption code on the card, and Save the Planet and Win will offset 19.6 cubic feet of carbon -- equivalent to one gallon of gas. AddOffset cards also come with a perforated box that easily turns into a cute point of presence (POP) for putting on your desk at the office or counter in a store.

When you give out these carbon offset cards, you're not only neutralizing some of the carbon your friends, family, and colleagues put in the air, you're also helping to spread environmental awareness that will translate into a healthier planet for us all. AddOffset cards and packaging are made from 100% recycled paper with eco-friendly water ink. And Save the Planet and Win not only pays for shipping, but also neutralizes the carbon produced in shipping -- so there's no reason to feel guilty.

Save the Planet and Win is the first Voluntary Personal Carbon Registry (VPCR) in the United States. Members can calculate, monitor, and reduce their footprint by participating in free green and social marketing promotions. And Save the Planet and Win's Carbon Collective lets friends, family, and co-workers join up and track the total carbon reductions achieved by their group. Members can share their green accomplishments, chat about the issues, and share sustainable solutions within the community.

In addition, Save the Planet and Win offers its members multiple ways to win cash, prizes, and additional carbon offsets, including a weekly sweepstakes. With the site's "Click Green and Win promotions," members simply watch a short message from one of Save the Planet and Win's green sponsors to accumulate points that can be redeemed for cash or contributions to green projects.

Visit to request your free AddOffset cards and encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to join your efforts to combat global warming. You'll be inspiring others to make a difference this holiday season, and will become more inspired yourself.
