For every 10 questions that are answered correctly on our site, we will plant 1 tree! That doesn't seem like much, but if the average world citizen planted a SINGLE tree every 2 months, they would be carbon neutral over their entire life.

We could have an unofficial contest to see who can plant the most daily..............althought the comments would get pretty long.

I thought something fun would be to work together and do a record day. You can see stats here:

http://jogogreen.com/impact.php

On April 25 (the day they lanuched) they planted 732 trees - I would love to beat that record!!! Maybe we could pick a day to focus our efforts???

Good luck with the game. I really like it! I planted 19 trees so far.I hope many new questions will be added soon.

I searched for a topic like this with the care2 search engine but I couldn't find it, so I added my own article:

Noted. 'You've planted 5 trees.' Informative,fun and very graifying to know that it was so easy to plant five trees. Thank you,Chris...and I think it woud be grand to choose a day to make a huge Care Tree/Care2 statment.

I just saw this message on the Jogogreen website. What a pitty that it can't continue. But thanks for the 5000 trees you will plant. That is already a lot!



"A Message from the Jogo Team
Dear Jogo Planters,

First off, let me thank you for making Jogo Green so amazing. You’ve helped plant over five thousand trees and we absolutely could not have done it without you! Five thousand trees is an incredible accomplishment and everyone who has answered a question should be proud. Not only have you made a direct impact on climate change through planting trees, you have helped spread environmental awareness in a way we had never thought possible. We applaud you.

Regrettably, we cannot continue to fund planting trees on JogoGreen.com. Advertisers are simply not as interested in green marketing as we originally thought. Be assured, every single tree planted as of Friday May 9th at 10:30 PM PST will be paid for and planted. We will post proof of donation and planting on our “Trees” page very shortly. JogoGreen.com will stay live, we will continue to add and update questions, and answering questions will earn “virtual” trees.

If you are interested in advertising on Jogo Green to help us start planting real trees again, please let us know. Until then, thank you all for your contributions to this community and to our environment. Five thousand trees stand testament to your efforts.

Sincerely,
Rob Balian and the Jogo Green Team"

I don't see the above message anymore on the site. Does that mean real trees will be planted for every ten correct answers again?

Site still let me play today and said I had planted 13 trees...I am confused as to what is going on in lieu of earlier message also, Tatiana. I am going to continue planting, in hopes that they got a sponsor, until a message again appears to the contrary.

Hello Care2!

Thanks for your overwhelming support for JogoGreen. You have made a big difference so far by answering questions, writing new questions, and suggesting new ideas for the site.

Sorry for the "virtual tree" scare, but we're planting real trees now! Also, any virtual trees you planted on the site will be planted in the ground. Thank you again for your support and feedback!

-Rob and the JogoTeam

Rob - that is fantastic news!!! When the site went to "virtual" there was an announcement on your home page - it would be great to see such an announcement that real trees are back :) I have visited the site a few times and have been unsure of the tree status....

Thank you Chris, to Rob B and the wonderful people at JogoGreen. i am excited!

Message at end of my session: "You ha planted 18 trees"...what a great campaign that allows one to achieve this kind of impact in so short a time!

My sporadic playing of this informative game has resulted in the planting of 27 trees...now that is a powerful message and a delightful image to contemplate!

Well done Carolyn and everyone else. i'll have to get stuck into this game regularly and make sure others to too! Thanks Chris for bringing this JogoGreen to our attention.
