What do websites do to reduce or produce carbon?



  1. 0 Votes

    A website is almost a form of advertisement or PR for businesses, causes, and people alike. The internet is replacing countless amounts of advertising that could be done using paper products and other valuable resources. Thus, just by having a website, people are most likely cutting down on their paper use number one, and overall carbon footprints as well. Websites can also by “carbon credits” where they pay a company to plant trees and offset the carbon or pollution that they create.

      Yeah I think the best value that we get from websites is advertisement without the use of resources from billboards or paper for magazines.

    Web sites produce carbon because they are all hosted by servers, or computers that stay on 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. These computers consume energy and actually create a great deal of carbon. However, web sites can also reduce carbon by giving people the chance to buy carbon credits. Some web sites also offer tips about how to “green” your life. In addition, I know there is a Facebook application that allows you to reduce the carbon in the atmosphere if you have it on your page–or at least that is what it is supposed to do. I don’t know if anyone monitors it. But what this shows is that we’ll never be able to stop using energy completely, but we can offset our carbon usage.
