Building A Stronger Future
The Monkee-Boy Tree Initiative
Did you know that every website carries a certain carbon footprint? According to Reset.org, "an average website produces 4.61 grams of CO2 for every page view. For websites with an average of 10,000 page views per month, that makes 553 kilograms of CO2 per year." That can add up quickly! At Monkee-Boy, we are dedicated to helping the environment and keeping this planet healthy for future generations of Monkee-Boys and Monkee-Girls. As part of the Monkee-Boy Tree Initiative, we calculate the carbon emissions produced by the websites we create through the Website Carbon Calculator and annually purchase trees through American Forests to offset their collective carbon footprint.
Since the program's inception, over 5700 trees have been planted on behalf of our clients.
Girls Empowerment Network
Originally called The Ophelia Project, the Girls Empowerment Network was created in 1996 by 12 concerned mothers raising adolescent girls in Austin, Texas. These mothers met after reading Reviving Ophelia, a book by Dr. Mary Pipher, to address an increasing trend among middle school-aged girls – a systematic decline and sometimes permanent loss of self-esteem, the outcome of which can be devastating: epidemic levels of anorexia/bulimia, self-mutilation, depression, low academic achievement, teen pregnancy, and drug abuse.
