Go for the Green

'Go for the Green' is the marketing slogan to be used by The Deutsche Bank Ladies Golf Swiss Open in 2009. Why? Well, this event is going to be the first ever carbon neutral Golf Tournament.

Event organisers have calculated the total emissions volume in advance, to put it another way the event's carbon footprint. Gone and purchased an emissions certificate, not sure where you buy those from, to neutralise any emissions. I think they call this carbon offsetting.

The money will be used to install 5,500 biogas plants for private households in India, and to increase the efficiency of a renewable energy plant in Brazil.

I wonder if the women golf pro's will be wearing organic cotton carbon neutral clothing or just the usual big brand golf gear made in polluting factories by under-paid, under-aged textile workers?
