In July of 2009, 3 high school freshmen formed GreenTree of Tulsa as an environmental group that would help reduce the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Our plan is to plant trees in Tulsa and surrounding areas to sequester Co2. While working on this project we came to realize that not only the planet and humans are affected, animals are also greatly affected. Climate change and high Co2 levels are severely harming the polar bear's habitats. Due to their dangerous situation, polar bears have become a large part of our project. Since July of 2009, GreenTree of Tulsa(GTOT) has planted over 2,150 trees to help save the polar bears and our environment.

Wind Power at Home
An Oklahoma power company called AEP-PSO, is helping customers go green. Customers can choose to have their electricity come from wind power instead of coal. For just $2.85/100 kilowatts, Oklahomans can help save the planet. Wind power does not emit carbon dioxide like burning coal does. If everyone switched to renewable energy, it would save millions of pounds of co2 from being released into the environment.
