LOW-IMPACT

Collectively making small changes will make a big difference to reducing our impact on the planet. Small changes to the food we eat, the clothes we buy, the way we travel and the way we communicate will go a long way.

Yes, the way we communicate is something we can change as the internet is a dirty place. Think about how much data is transferred on the internet in 1 minute. All of that data storage and transfer requires electricity, creating carbon emissions which have a bigger-than-you-think impact on climate change.

icon01

Limiting demand is a strategy that we apply elsewhere, for instance, by encouraging people to eat less meat, or to lower the thermostat of the heating system. However, it is controversial when applied to the internet, in part because the connection between the data we consume and energy is not as obvious.

icon02

Inspired by all this, we have decided to replace our dirty old website with a Low Impact Website. One that is 100% powered by on-site solar energy, atmospheric air, and water cooling in California. Everything about this website is designed and implemented in a way that keeps energy consumption to the minimum and shares Berne with the world without harming it. You will notice we are doing without data-heavy elements like images and videos, all of this tremendously reduces data transfers and consequently energy consumption.

HOSTING ON 100% SOLAR POWERED SYSTEM WILL YEARLY HELP TO ELIMINATE THE PRODUCTION OF:

34,488 LBS OF CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2/GHG)
50.6 LBS OF NITROGEN OXIDE (NOX/Smog)
37.4 LBS OF SULFATE (SO4/Acid Rain)

THIS IS THE EQUIVALENT OF PLANTING 8 ACRES OF TREES PER YEAR OR DRIVING A VEHICLE FOR 38,216 MILES PER YEAR.

WHAT CAN I DO?

If you are a website owner, we encourage you to think about the environmental impact of your website, and that of your hosting service provider.
If you are not a website owner, why not join us in spreading the word and encouraging this message?

We are on a mission to get as many artist websites converted into low impact websites as possible! 1 low impact website is insignificant on its own, but multiply that by 500 and collectively we would have made a real difference. If you would like to know more, would like to convert your dirty website into a low impact one, or are simply in love with our low impact website movement, GET IN TOUCH!
