Green your Website: Sustainability for bandwidth

January 10, 2010

http://www.co2stats.com

In a time when energy from servers is starting to generate more CO2 then paper/ print media, why is this not a hot topic. ( I have a theory actually) . Well, look what I found today.

Website monitors user bandwidth, and optimizes how that energy comes from several renewable energy resources.  Ability to buy offsets, etc. For the sustainability enthusiast.

But really…  with the way the web is growing ( and other consumerist culture ), I think we are all going to have to start addressing the bandwidth issue, along with legacy hardware systems (ewaste). Its going to be a large issue that will effect public health, and our ecosystem, and economy.
