I would like to take this opportunity to ask you a question: To what extent do you leave your footprint in the environment?
Did you know that…
- Plastic bags take over 100 years to degrade? They are often eaten by large fish and birds, causing disease and death among them.
- If not properly recycled, paper and plastic, glass and metal containers thrown in the trash must go through contaminating processes to be treated.
- Do you really need to keep your home at 25º C throughout the winter?
- Everyone likes exotic animals and plants, but they have adverse effects on local ecosystems.
Remember: What can you do with any obsolete computers, telephones, etc. you have at home?
I recommend you to check your carbon footprint at http://www.mycarbonfootprint.eu/index.cfm?language=en and try to decrease it.
Personally, I am trying to make it as invisible as possible.
Although the efforts made by large, more polluting companies are obviously more important, I think all of us should do our bit. I am therefore very happy about Panda Security’s active recycling and energy-saving policies. Besides, we also collaborate actively with WWF http://www.wwf.org/ as corporate supporters.
Would you like us to publish your initiatives to reduce environmental footprints? Tell us about them!
