Nicole Barnes - Wild Thyme Flowers
"Our business is obviously a lot closer to nature than most. So it makes both ethical and commercial sense for us to make sure that we can to protect the environment that, after all, provides our livelihood. Carbon offsetting our web site is one very simple and effective way of achieving this with relatively little time and cost input. At the same time, our business gets showcased to the increasing number of customers who are getting environmentally 'choosy' about who they do business with. Personally, I'd recommend offsetting to anyone as both globally necessary and personally straightforward!"

Website Builder Webeden.co.uk
"We provide a web based system that makes it easy for anyone to build a website, even if they have no experience at all. Even someone who is new to the web can create a website with webeden that looks like it has been designed by a professional. People are attracted to website building for many different reasons. For some it´s about showcasing their creativity, for others it´s about bringing together a community of people. And for businesses it´s a chance to reach new customers in an efficient way. But website builders are painfully aware that this ‘efficiency’ comes at a price the servers that they use can contribute a huge amount to global CO2 emissions. So at Webeden.co.uk we ease their conscience by offsetting each website with COCO2. Its peace of mind for them, and feels like the right thing for us."
Web Designer WebWorx24
"Although we´re providing cheap web design services, our customers still put a price on the environment. They´ve chosen to invest in their website because it´s a cost effective distribution channel. They can use it to get new customers or to deliver services. What they don´t want is to save money on web design, only to have created a cost in terms of carbon emissions. By signing up with COCO2.org, we can make our customers feel better about the extra electricity they´re using by having a website. And of course they also get to show their customers how green they are: it has both an environmental and a marketing benefit. We all know that carbon offsetting isn´t perfect, but it´s a solid and meaningful gesture in the right direction."
Website Builder Reviews
"The more time people spend online, the more they want to do online. Through sites like Facebook and MySpace, people have got a taste for generating their own content. The next obvious choice for them is to build a website. But thatís where things get complicated. There is a bewildering choice of technologies, software and systems for beginners to use.
Thatís where Website Builder Reviews comes in. We help people find out which website builder is the best choice, by reading user reviews by people who have tried them already. Users can rate each website builder by features, support and pricing, and give them an overall rating too. We list all the biggest providers in the UK and the US, and the system automatically aggregates the scoring so users can see the one with the best overall score.
We offset through COCO2 because we believe in a sustainable model of technology, whereby new developments carry no environmental cost. We want to set an example to our website visitors so they will choose to offset the emissions from their new website too."

Search Agency Euston Digital
"At Euston Digital weíve made great efforts to reduce our carbon footprint. We do not allow people to drive to work; we recycle all our paper and computer equipment; and we work without using up consumables. So we were very excited to come across coco2.org. We use their carbon offsetting system to offset the emission of every website we build. And as a London Digital Agency we have taken the extra steps to make all our marketing campaigns carbon neutral. As we deliver many thousands of ads and clicks every day, we use a lot of server space and bandwidth. Now all that energy is offset, and our clients know that their campaigns arenít costing the earth."
