Consumers Can Go Green for Earth Day at WhiteFence.com
Consumers can help the environment by participating in the WhiteFence Virtual Plant-athon
promotion or by signing up for a renewable energy plan at WhiteFence, the nation's leading site
to compare and order home services
Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 22, 2010 -- In celebration of Earth Day today, WhiteFence is holding a Virtual
Plant-athon that allows people to make the planet a greener place just by becoming a fan of WhiteFence on
Facebook. WhiteFence will donate a $1 to the Arbor Day Foundation to plant a tree for every new fan of the
company between Earth Day (April 22nd) and Arbor Day (April 30th), up to $1,500. This is a simple way for
anyone to make a difference without having to spend a dime, and could result in 1,500 new trees in the world.
Another way consumers can reduce their impact on the planet on Earth Day or all year round is to switch to an
electricity plan featuring power generated from renewable sources. While green energy plans are available to
millions of Americans in deregulated markets such as Texas, many are not aware they have the ability to switch.
When they shop at WhiteFence, consumers can easily discover their clean energy options, compare plans and
order new service, all on just one site.
Reducing energy use with things like compact florescent light bulbs and programmable thermostats are great
steps toward being more environmentally conscious, but they only address one side of the battle. By switching to
a renewable energy source along with cutting usage, a household can cut its carbon emissions drastically. While it
used to be the case that only those willing to install their own solar panels and windmills were able to power their
home with clean energy, over the last few years consumers have seen a steady stream of green energy options
showing up on the market. It is now possible to find electricity plans that provide power over the grid that has
been generated using wind, solar, geothermal and other eco-friendly sources.
