Posted on September 8, 2010 by kyleNow it’s probably obvious but when I say greener I’m not asking whether the web has made our planet a different colour, I am asking if, as the web has evolved into such an influential part of our lives, it has slowly helped us towards a more eco-friendly planet. I think that the first subject I should raise are the negative effects the internet have on the planet if any. Well let’s think about it, the main negative here is that to use the internet you need a computer or portable device. I don’t want to go all eco-freak on you but a lot of these devices are filled with toxic chemicals, carcinogens, heavy metals and plastics most of which will end up in a land fill. But saying that, all of this is improving as most manufacturers are becoming a lot more eco-aware and there are now multiple ways to recycle your computer or device.
