May 14, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – The Free State Group
, a leading provider of e-marketing, web development and hosting services, is proud to announce its new green initiative. Free State announced that it is offsetting its carbon emissions with Carbonfund.org
, the leading nonprofit carbon offset and climate solutions organization.
Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Partner program supports renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reforestation projects in the U.S. and abroad to reduce carbon dioxide pollution and help hasten our transition to a clean energy future.
The Free State Group has been utilizing server virtualization technologies that allow it to host more web sites with fewer power-hungry servers for several years and is proud to now completely offset its carbon footprint with carbon credits from Carbonfund.
"This was really a no brainer for us," said Tyler Eagleton, co-founder of the Free State Group. "We’ve had several clients ask what steps we’ve taken to lessen our impact on the environment. We know that our hosting facility in Kansas City depends on electricity - there’s no way around that. However, there is a way to do it cleanly and with as little environmental impact as possible. We already utilize server virtualization technology to lessen our power demands but as of today, we’re proud to say that we’re offsetting more than three times the carbon that we’re currently responsible for generating. This enables our clients and their customers to feel good knowing that we’re all doing our parts to create a sustainable future."
The Free State Group is a leading e-marketing, web development and hosting company with offices in Kansas City and Houston. Free State serves companies in a wide range of industries and is proud to provide green web hosting and e-mail.
Carbonfund.org is the leading nonprofit carbon offset and climate solutions organization. Carbon offsets enable individuals and businesses to reduce carbon dioxide emissions they are responsible for in their everyday lives by supporting renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects where they are most cost effective.
