Like Richard,

we've got a green plan you can be part of!

true-green-kangaroo

Proudly supporting Carbon Neutral.

The internet is set to contribute more carbon emissions than aviation^

It may not seem like it, but our web presence has a carbon footprint too.

Imagine a little burrow in the ground where you can store all your internet files, images or even websites, like those precious Joey pics.

And just like how a kangaroo needs to use its legs to hop around, a web hosting server (that stores these files) needs power to share that data with the world and keep things running well.

Keep those specific goals and objectives in mind when you're doing your research

3 ‘Dirty’ Elements of the web today:

water-icon
Water

Datacentres need cooling 24/7, using billions of litres of water, a dirty industry secret.

Electricity usage

Australia’s coal power use leads to a larger carbon footprint than New Zealand’s 81% renewable energy use in 2021.

E-waste

Tech waste is problematic at various levels: datacentres, the tech industry, and individuals dumping devices.

Datacentres generate heat and CO2, contributing to climate change. While there are some low-carbon sources of power,  around 80% of global power comes from fossil fuels.

What you can do:

1
Spring clean
Keep an eye out for how many files you store on the web or save to your devices. Delete any unused images, documents or files you no longer need and turn off auto cloud back-ups for every file.
2
Support renewable energy
Most households and businesses don't know that they can support renewables by purchasing GreenPower from their energy retailer. You could also consider switching to solar energy to reduce your energy bill and your carbon footprint.
3
Compress files and images:
When sending or uploading files to the web, consider compressing them first with tools like TINYPNG.com (does JPEG files too) and Smallpdf.com for your PDF docs.
4
Choose eco alternatives
Look for sustainable and ethical options and investigate their claims to avoid greenwashing. For example, here at True Green® we are all about helping businesses to reduce their carbon footprint on the web in a transparent way.
