HOW MUCH DOES THE INTERNET POLLUTE?
HOW MUCH DOES THE INTERNET ACTUALLY POLLUTE?
It's a question we don't often ask ourselves. Because the Internet always seems like something distant and ethereal. But the Internet pollutes, and a lot. To give you a quick idea, the Internet produces the same amount of pollution as:
AS IF ALL 31 MILLION ENGLISH CARS DECIDED TO TRIP THE WORLD AT THE SAME TIME
AS IF THE ICELANDIC VOLCANO EYJADJALLAJÖKULL CONSTANTLY ERUPTED FOR 5 AND A HALF YEARS
AS IF A BOEING 747 PLANE FLYED FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON 5704 TIMES
We're passionate about websites, but we also want to ensure they don't harm our environment.
ECO SUSTAINABLE WEB HOSTING
As ephemeral as it may seem, we must not forget that Internet technology is based on more than real mechanisms, which keep it alive and functioning. All the equipment and servers that manage the Internet behind the scenes are enormous pollution-spewing machines.
With Easy Green Hosting you can be sure that your slice of the network will be powered by 100% renewable energy.
Each website is hosted on a server in a datacentre – a building packed with servers that allow you to have your page online, play your videos, use online APPs, download files and, in general, make your experience on the internet as fast, modern and pleasant as possible.
100% Renewable Energy
Truly sustainable hosting starts with 100% renewable energy.
Thanks to our collaboration with Kualo ltd, in the UK our data center runs on 100% renewable energy as specified by E.ON (our supplier) and regulated by Ofgem. E.ON is a leading renewable energy generator in the UK with over 20 onshore and offshore wind farms, including the London Array, the largest offshore wind farm in the world with a capacity of 630 MW.
We also use 100% renewable energy in our operations in the United States, as certified by Green-e, North America's leading voluntary renewable energy certification program. We have also been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a Green Power Partner. Our renewable energies come from Native Energy, one of the few truly high-integrity companies in the industry. Their projects go beyond just generating renewable energy, but also provide social benefits for the communities where those projects are located, including schools, family-owned farms, and Native American tribes.
Our provider Kualo ltd is also member of Green Web Foundation, a nonprofit organization that is on a mission to accelerate the transition to an all-green Internet. You can check if your site is running on green servers with KualoLtdergy on their website.
WE HELP REFORESTATION
We have decided to take another step towards a cleaner world!
In collaboration with Treedom, we are growing new trees, and you can help us. By purchasing one of our hosting plans, you can choose to adopt a tree, absolutely free.
You can give this tree your name or your domain name. This way your site will grow together with your tree, helping the planet on two fronts.
If you decide to adopt a tree, you will be assigned a unique link, where you can see the profile of your tree and share it on your website or on your social media.
