Go Maryland! Beat Michigan!
For the second year, Odwalla, the maker of high-end juice drinks and snack bars, is handing out cash to states for the planting of trees.
For every mouse click on their Plant-A-Tree website, Odwalla is donating $1 toward the purchase of trees for state parks. The program--it's free to vote--will max out when the total reaches $100,000.
For its size, Maryland is doing well. Of the approximately 39,500 votes cast so far, the Free State is fourth, with slightly more than 2,601 clicks. And, we have a cool video to promote our tree-planing effort.
Michigan, which won last year, has tallied nearly 12,000 votes--what, are they letting prison convicts participate?
Texas is second (9,363 and counting) and neighboring Pennsylvania is third (3,648 as of this moment).
Last year, Maryland (pop. 5.7 million) finished third and won $17,443 for planting. Michigan, with 9.9 million residents, won $46,124, and Pennsylvania, with a population of 12.6 million, won $30,656.
