Green Business is Good Business
We are committed to environmental sustainability. We specialize in working with Renewable Energy clients and 'green' organizations, and we also provide Wind-Power Web Hosting.
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 started off this week with a Green Space Meeting in Cootes Paradise, a wetland near our home city of Hamilton, Ontario. We spied the antlered whitetail deer (above photo) grazing in the marsh, along with a wild swan and about 100 cedar waxwings. More photos can be found on our new Flickr Stream and Green Space Meetings Flickr Group Photo Pool.
Renewsing (motto: Reducing, Reusing, Recycling, ReNEWSing) is a project of Canvas Dreams, whom we work with to offer wind-power web hosting to our clients. The site aggregates RSS news feeds from the many participating green companies who host their web sites on wind-power.
Early this week I saw Planet Green's article Top 5 Eco TEDsters propagate across Twitter. At CartaNova, TED -- short for Technology, Environment, Design -- is a favourite source of ours for short talks about the future of energy, the environment, technology, education, and countless other topics. They are inspiring, easy to follow, freely accessible, and a great example of openness in research and education.
I thought it was unfortunate that out of this "Top 5" article not a single speaker was female. Many of the sciences are still overwhelmingly male-dominated, especially amongst the "celebrities" of science. As of the publish date of this article, out of the 44 videos tagged under 'environment' at TED.com, only 6 are talks by women.) Gender imbalances in the sciences are hardly TED's or Planet Green's fault, so I my intent is not to detract from their highlighted of 5 eco-talks, but to add to an already great list.
The reputable journalists at the non-religious Christian Science Monitor [about] have published a new article entitled Carbon Offsets May Ease Eco-Guilt, but not Global Warming. We agree and said the same thing when we introduced our new directly wind-powered Green Web Hosting.
From the article:
A forest was supposed to be here, inhaling carbon dioxide. But the fields are as empty as the promises of the carbon offsets that promoters said would help negate global warming with thousands of new trees near this Hungarian village.
