A collection of sustainable web design resources
The last month I've been diving into sustainable web design, and although I keep links in apple notes, bookmarks etc. I kind of like the idea of using the blog for long-term storage.
As Chris Coyier calls it in his blog post: "the ultimate long-term link storage".
Tools, manifesto and directories:
Sustainable Web Manifesto – A manifesto pledging your commitment to start applying these principles in your work.
Ecograder Another measurement tool
Statsy Interesting uptime monitor including carbon footprint tracking.
The Green Web Foundation List of green hosting. Definitely far from a complete list, but still a good general overview of some options.
