Overstock.com Offers Carbon-Neutral Shipping, for Free
If you follow environmental issues, there's no doubt your e-mail inbox has been filled with messages in recent days and weeks. It's Earth Day , Earth Month, green season. One message that caught my eye, though, was an announcement from Overstock.com that it will now be offering carbon-neutral shipping under a partnership with the Carbonfund.org Foundation . Oh, it must just be for Earth Day. No, it's from now on. Well then there must be a catch. Sure: This only applies to purchases from the big O's Worldstock Fair Trade inventory. OK, that's something to support. But how much extra does it cost?
