We’re pleased to announce that we’ve relocated the Fight Supplies website to a green data centre powered by 100% renewable energy.
In addition to offsetting our carbon footprint with the help of Ecologi and planting trees for every order we receive, we’ve now further reduced our carbon emissions by deciding to host our website with Krystal Hosting.
Krystal Hosting is a green web hosting provider based in the UK whose datacentres are powered by 100% renewable energy from sources like the sun, wind and sea.
In 2016, it was reported that the world’s data centres used more than Britain’s total electricity consumption – 416.2 terawatt hours, significantly higher than the UK’s 300 terawatt hours. Recent predictions state that the energy consumption of data centres is set to account for 3.2 percent of the total worldwide carbon emissions by 2025 and they could consume no less than a fifth of global electricity.
The next step in our journey of establishing an eco-concious brand involves further improving our environmental performance and minimising waste production.
Our packaging currently consist of mailing bags made from a minimum 30% post consumer waste plastic. Although 100% recyclable, an improvement would be to use plastic-free cardboard boxes that are both recyclable and biodegradable.
Using 100% sustainable materials for packaging will greatly reduce our waste production and is something we want to achieve in the coming months. Stay tuned!
