Reforestation Efforts Get Help from Book Store

As many of you know -- we're losing trees and we are losing them fast. According to The Rainforest Action Network, "An area of rainforest the size of a football field is destroyed every second of every day. Over half of all the rainforests have already disappeared."

There are myriad ways to tackle the problem, but here's a group that involved in reforestation -- iChapters.com. They're actually an on-line store where students can purchase print and digital books. For the last month they've been trying to support conservation and reforestation efforts by partnering with ChangingthePresent.org and Paso Pacifico in Central America.

Here's their project: for every eChapter or eBook purchased on their site, a tree is planted by Paso Pacifico in their reforestation efforts. The kicker is ... time is running out. The project ends tomorrow -- February 15.
