wtf is a virtual tree!? and what's plating for that matter?!
Thanks for your question! Good to know you're interested.
The idea of playing the game in the link is to plant a 'virutal' tree - sort of like planting a tree in a game/online.
You can in fact choose what TYPE of tree to plant, and according to the type you choose, the tree will grow in its own unique environment. The game aims to make the impact of biodiversity and the ecosystem more widespread.
When you plant an online tree, CLP donates HK$5 to green partners around Asia-Pacific, including Australia, China, Hong Kong, India and Thailand.
The aim is to reach 100,000 trees - so HK$500,000 will be donated, and 100,000 people will know a little bit more about the environment and preserving what we have.
Here's the official release:https://www.clpgroup.com/ourcompany/news/Pages/20100823.aspx
Go on! Plant a tree...and invite your friends http://bit.ly/clp_forum
