I do love the color PINK, and even made it part of the BossDog brand to identify my company as woman-owned, but the truth is, GREEN is my favorite color. And so in 2018, on this first #EarthDay as BossDog, I have an opportunity and a responsibility to tell the world that I am committed to doing my part and more each day to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Your website has a carbon footprint.
Website hosting servers pull energy from the grid, most of that energy comes from fossil fuels. Each web hosting server produces 1390 pounds of CO2 each year! There are tens of millions of servers worldwide and growth in web hosting services is estimated to be greater than 400% each year for the foreseeable future.Trey Gardner, CEO, GreenGeeks.com
One of the top 5 reasons to consider switching to BossDog is kind of a big one. We lease our servers, located in the U.S., from GreenGeeks.com, a company that purchases wind energy credits to compensate threefold for the power used.
What that means is that for every amperage of power pulled from the grid, three times that is invested in the form of renewable energy.
Is your website green?
Now is the time. You can make a difference by choosing to host your website with a company that gives back to the environment. You may not go with BossDog as your web hosting provider and that’s ok, but I do hope you will choose to host your website with another eco-friendly company.
