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.
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?
Mayday Magazine is a monthly publication from the Sky Dragon Community Development Co-Op in Hamilton, Ontario which focuses on progressive social and environmental change.
For their May issue, Mayday interviewed us in their new series profiling green businesses.
You can find the interview at: http://www.maydaymagazine.ca/content/green-business-profile-cartanova-design-co or if you're in Hamilton, Mayday can be found in print in numerous locations across the city.
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.
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]
The LUNA Project is an off-grid eco-education centre located in Southern Ontario, near the city of Hamilton. It is not just a nice place to visit – it is home for LUNA Project founder David Masters. Seeking to get closer to nature, David built a yurt and began transforming old farmland into sustainable forest.
