Last Thursday, the CartaNova team attended Hamilton’s Sustainable Cities Forum and a talk by on economist and recent author Jeff Rubin (TVO Video) at the beautiful Liuna Station. The forum brought together local professionals to discuss issues of waste management, transportation, energy, and sustainability. It was an informative morning where we were lucky to connect with like-minded people who are also working in the Hamilton area.
We're happy to share our interview with The Spectator, the city and regional newspaper for Hamilton, Ontario. The city is currently working hard to foster Clean Technology Development, and our wind-powered web hosting and 'eco-friendly' approach is a good match.
Thanks are due to 'The Spec' and Jennifer Patterson et. al at Hamilton Economic Development for some recent publicity and networking efforts on our behalf!
As an eco-friendly web design firm we are often asked: how relevant to the environment is being 'green' on the Internet?
We're very happy to announce that our web sites are now directly powered by wind energy. CartaNova is built around sustainable principles - and we required web hosting to match.
After some searching we were excited to strike up a new business relationship with Canvas Dreams in Portland, Oregon. Our new server(s) reside in a secure data center powered by Renewable Energy initiatives including the Biglow Canyon Wind Farm. [video]
