Freeform Dynamics The level of importance placed on ‘green IT’ when it comes to choosing new kit and looking at different IT vendors isn’t that great, as 1,300 readers recently told us.

Misleading and evasive headline

"Where we really are is simply at the beginning of an era where some broad areas which used to be filed under ‘good business sense’ have become synonymous with giving Mother Earth a helping hand"

The latest 'in thing' is to have a notice which says.....
Do you really need to print this email?
on the bottom of an email.
My view is yes, I print it out on recycled paper, then turn off the computer and file it away and then when I want to read the email, I open the draw and take out the printed email. Far cheaper than having having to boot up a computer.
And when I have finished with the paper, I use the other side, and when thats done, its shredded for our chickens to crap on, then it goes into the compost head. Emails to eggs in our house!!!
