I think everyone wants to do their part for the planet. I was always interested in recycling and helping the planet. When I had kids all that changed and I wanted to do even more to help the environment so that they have a great place to live and can enjoy the outdoors as much as I do.
I don’t think I will ever go as far as driving a car that runs on old fry grease or live on a commune, there are choices I can make each day that may seem little but over the course of a couple months or a couple years can really add up.
One thing I know a lot about is hosting websites and the Internet in general. It might be surprising to some people how much power is needed to keep the Internet running. But take a few minutes and think about how BIG it is. How many websites do you go to in a week? How many text messages do you send? They all use servers and servers use electricity, twenty four hours a day seven days a week the servers are running in case someone wants to access the content on your site or see a picture you just took or send you a text about the next episode of Downton Abbey.
One choice we can make in our everyday lives is to support companies and products that support the environment. That is why I recommend using solar powered hosting for your website. If you are going to put something out on the Internet why not use servers powered by the sun instead of harmful fossil sourced energy?
I am not talking about giving up quality or even convenience for choosing to be green. Try using a solar hosting company for your websites and show other people that you care about the environment and the future of the Earth!
