I've been meaning to write up some notes about "the environment" and me.
I'm on the tree-hugging side of the fence politically, and have some of the old-fashioned skin-flint variety of environmentalist in my personal choices [keep the house cool, hang up my laundry to dry, walk/bike/TTC most of the time, own an old used Prius, caulk and insulate my old house obsessively, pay attention to my gas/electricty bills, etc.].
But for the purposes of this post, I want to point out that my website development business is also "environmental", even though I don't flaunt it very much.
- I work from home [no extra office to heat, no commuting].
- I host my sites on a "green" server at rackforce.ca
- By focusing on only Drupal, I can set up my server to be optimized for Drupal hosting, which is more efficient [both at a machine/energy level, as well as my time].
- I host quite a few environmental organizations.
So if you're looking for "the environmental choice" in your web development or hosting, you could do worse than using my services.
