This is how we made our website
Computer's only using 100% green energy
The computers used to make this website were running on 100% renewable energy coming from a combination of wind and solar power.
100% green hosting
To host our website we are using a Digital Ocean datacenter located in Frankfurt, Germany. The Interxion datacenter is running on 100% renewable energy and the excess heat from the data center is used to heat parts of Frankfurt.
Dark-mode as standard
To lower the power consumption from devices visiting our website we chose to use a dark-mode as standard. Today there are over a billion mobile devices using OLED displays around the world and by using dark tones we can lower the power consumption on those devices visiting our website.
Images are some of the heaviest elements on a page and that is why we compress our images and use the WebP format when supported in your browser.
Videos without autoplay
Videos on our website will not automatically be playing or loading. We display a thumbnail and once you click the image we render the video.
Our website makes use of two lightweight fonts "Cardo" and "Open Sans" from Google Fonts. Our fonts files are compressed and saved as WOFF2 and since our server is running on renewable energy, we host our own fonts instead of using a CDN.
Sustainable web design
When building our backend code we chose a lightweight Express server to lower the requirements for our VPS.
