    I love the concept behind http://www.mygreengames.com/ and hope to see the site grow and grow (no pun intended).

    Basically the website owners plant one tree in Peru, every time 1,000 games are played on the site. So you can help the environment by playing online games.

    What do you think of the site and the concept behind it?

    Do you think the site has the potential to become really popular?

    Would you improve it in any way?

    Very interesting concept, I like that a lot.

    As long as they promote it properly they will do well. I just emailed them a few suggestions on getting more traffic. :)

    Nice share, Fergal. I am a true blue nature freak and am delighted to find this site. I think it's an awesome initiative - Great way to popularise the site. However, 1000 games = 1 tree planted is too less.. I think they can make it better by maybe saying - We will plant a seed or a small shurb/plant for ever 20 games played..something like that so that every person will try and play more games to ensure he/she is responsible for that 1 plantation - It is a feel good factor for that person and 20 is an achievable number.

    Good idea Jo, I've given the website owners a link to this thread, so hopefully they will read your suggestion.

    Yes, I agree that this is a very interesting concept indeed. They are doing their part in protecting the environment by planting trees for every 1000 games played. Hope they post the pics of the planted trees soon so that members can see the fruits of their labor.

    How do they count one game by the way? Is it until game over or until the member logoff from their site? If it's until game over, then it would be better to play arcade games then. It's harder and longer for Online role-playing games until game over. Also, crappy players will then be playing more games because they die a lot. :)

    The concept looks unique, and the way we can contribute is the best way one can opt for.
    this site should be promoted to target teens and kids, this way they can have fun as well as help the world stay green!

    I think the concept is excellent, however they can make it 1 tree for every 10 games played or even 50 ,that way it will be more fruitful(pun intended!), however it is one concept i think ,one can borrow for websites where nobody will be penalised for plagurism or content duplicacy!
    nice concept , one to copy and follow

    I absolutely love sites like these and will start playing this game immediately. I know another site called EcologyFund which has a similar concept except you click on any ad on the site to protect 87 square feet of land daily. I think both sites are an excellent way for providing a quick, fun, and easy way to help the world. I'm very happy you suggested this site and will start palying today!!!

    Good sharing, i always support this kind of site that helps to protect our earth. The problem is this site is not looks professional enough, and the adsense ads make the site looks funny. It will be better if they can develop the site like pogo, looks more professional and attract member to play game

    Though the concept is quite different and unique. If the admin is not a scammer, worth doing the job. We are not doing the job for the admin or the owner but for ourselves. Since planting trees is getting the nature back

    but yeah it would make our environment green.
