What is a Carbon Footprint
A Carbon Footprint is the measure given to the amount of green house
gases produced by burning fossil fuels, measured in units of carbon dioxide (ie
Kg). Like walking on a soft sandy beach everyone leaves a footprint, and the
aim of this web site, is to point to a number of ways in which this potential
damage to our environment can be reduced. This web site is sponsored by
Tranquil PC Ltd, and
we welcome other contributors to join us in our campaign to leave a lighter or
zero carbon footprint on our planet. If you have a valid contribution to make,
please let us know.

It may not seem so important, if there was only one or two PC's in your office, or even your home, but today there are tens of millions of PCs in use, and the amount of electricity they use, is not insignificant.
