I’m an avid knitter, crocheter, and music lover, but I also enjoy being outdoors. And, I want to do my part to preserve as much of our environment as I can. These days I’m more mindful of the impact I have on the earth, and the choices I make every day to reuse, recycle, drive less, bring my own bag, drink from my own reusable cup, skip buying plastic water bottles by the case, and sip from a reusable straw.
Pollution and climate change destroy ecosystems. That is a fact. So when I went into business as a web hosting reseller I made a deliberate choice to partner with a company that is invested in making a difference.
As a web hosting reseller I had a choice, and my choice was to partner with GreenGeeks – the most eco-friendly web hosting service in existence today. They work with environmental foundations to purchase wind energy credits to put back into the grid three times (3X) the amount of energy we consume. In effect GreenGeeks not only wipes out their carbon footprint but they’re also negating the carbon footprint of two additional companies of their size. This is in addition to already using energy efficient hardware housed in data centers designed to be environmentally friendly.
THE WEB HOSTING INDUSTRY CAN BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND CAN CHANGE COURSE BUT ONLY IF CONSUMERS LIKE YOU CHOOSE TO GO GREEN WITH YOUR WEB SITES AND FORCE OTHER COMPANIES IN MY INDUSTRY TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND ALSO BECOME ECO-FRIENDLY.
TREY GARDNER, CEO OF GREENGEEKS.COM
As a locally-owned and operated web hosting company in Lubbock, my intention has and continues to be to serve my clients with the best customer service and website care possible. And I hope that knowing my servers are part of a larger green company that is making a real positive difference in the environment matters to them as much as it does to me.
Whether you choose BossDog Hosting or GreenGeeks for your web hosting provider you can place any of these Green Hosting accreditation banners on your site to remind your visitors that you have chosen to host your site with an eco-friendly web hosting service provider.
Your website visitors will thank you for this and hopefully, they will, in turn, learn about the environmental impact of the web hosting industry so that they can make similar choices in the future.
You and I can be a part of changing the course for us, our children, and the life on our planet. I hope you will make this choice, for all of us.
