A new Web site lets you shop ‘til you drop, while reducing your carbon footprint.

Shopping isn’t usually considered an eco-friendly activity, but when you need to buy something, Mother Earth News brings you a way to reduce your environmental footprint. At www.EarthMoment.com, you can browse through thousands of products from your favorite online retailers. With every purchase you make, the retailer pays a commission to EarthMoment. We donate half of that to a carbon reduction program of your choice: renewable energy, energy-efficiency or reforestation. Plus, we’ll keep track of your carbon offsets, so you can see how much you’ve contributed to the fight against global warming!
