2 BILLION AND CLIMBING: JustGreenâ¿¢ Celebrates Carbon Offset Milestone To Help Stop Global Warming

TORONTO, July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JustGreen™, a Just Energy Group Inc. (NYSE/TXE: JE) brand, is pleased to announce that it has reached an impressive milestone -- the purchasing of over 2 billion pounds of carbon emissions thanks to JustGreen's renewable and offset programs and their proactive "Green" customers.  These joint efforts are the same as taking approximately 190,000 cars off the road or planting approximately 4.5 million trees.

"While we benefit from the many modern conveniences available at our disposal, every one of us contributes to the release of harmful carbon emissions in our day to day activities," says GP Manalac, JustGreen Executive VP. "We couldn't have reached over 2 billion pounds of offsets without the collective efforts of our customers and partners.  We thank them and look forward to continuing to lessen the environmental impact we have on the planet, for current generations and those to come."

Celebrating the milestone

To celebrate, JustGreen Lifestyle is going to offset more harmful CO2 pollution with the help of its FaceBook promotion.  The goal is to reach 10,000 pounds with every new like.  Once the goal is reached, it will be doubled and 20,000 pounds of emissions will be offset by investing in a renewable energy source, like wind or solar.  That is the same as planting 45 more trees.

As fans get engaged and we climb closer to the goal, there will be key milestones where great prizes can be drawn throughout the promotion. https://www.facebook.com/JustGreenLifestyle/app_131366273738542

"Fans win by learning more about offsetting pollution and the chance to win great prizes and our planet also benefits with more pollution being neutralized.  It all about community working together," continues Manalac.
