It’s easy to forget, in our wired world, the environmental impact of our digital lives.
According to one estimate, a full tenth of the world’s electricity is consumed by the use of computers and smartphones – and this percentage is growing.
What is the impact of a single blog on the environment?
The average blog will contribute 8 lbs of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere each year. When you multiply that by the number of blogs available, the impact is considerable.
So what’s a blogger to do?
I was happy to learn through Lynda Lippin’s blog that there is an initiative afoot to help bloggers offset the carbon impact of their work.
It’s an idea that’s too good not to share.
