Berlin is going for 100% renewable!

The amazing people of Berlin has done something amazing! They have voted to buy back their grid and go 100 percent renewable - completely overthrowing Swedish bad guys Vattenfall (yep, the James Bond-evil company), who has greatly overstated the value of the city's power grid to stop the work for sustainable energy in the city.

This is a magic example of democracy, good people and why the bad company allways looses.

The Guide to Greener Electronics

Greenpeace keeps doing great stuff all over, and this is something in our taste. The Guide to Greener Electronics is a very exact way to measure which company is good, and which is not.

The rule following should be simple, don't shop from the ones performing bad.

Make sure you have a look at the Guide right herrrrre!

And a big cheer for Wipro, on top of the list!

Ikea and the solar panels

It has only happened in one store yet - but let's pray it happens globaly soon: Ikea is announcing their plans to sell solar photovoltaic panels!

A cheap, quick way for consumers to easily turn their homes in to environment-friendly places fueled by sustainable energy? Sounds like utopia to us.

Read more about it here!

And why not ask your local IKEA if they plan on selling solar panels anytime soon? Would be a great way of making them understand that the good company wins!

Take action: Clean up the cloud!

Grrrrrreenpeace is doing this great thing where they urge us (yeah, you and me!) to take action. One of their best campaigns to date is the Clean Up The Cloud-one.

Yup, the INTERNET is mostly powered by coal-based energy. And coal is the worst of the worst when it comes to making the Earth burn up. So, as GP puts it: The tech industry is led by a few very large companies who can choose to quit the coal habit.

Join us in asking the CEO'S of Microsoft, Amazon and Apple to clean up the cloud! Do it here.

The Good Company Wins!

Scotland - Doing the right thing

Yeah, we know, a country is not a company - but the fact that Scotland is going for 100% renewable energy by 2020 is worth a post full of cheer.

The awesome people of the northern parts of Great Brittain has set a goal of meeting half its electricity demand from renewable sources by 2015, and are allready well on the way after reaching 35 percent in 2011.

Leading by setting a good example anyone? Read more here.

And yes, y'all allready know how we'll end this post - the Good Country Wins!

Apple and the solar arrays

Apple might not be allthrough awesome when it comes to environemental responsibility - BUT!

The fact that they're building "what will be the nation’s largest private solar arrays and the largest non-utility fuel cell installation operating anywhere in the country" to fuel their data center in Maiden, North Carolina deserves a big yay!

And a happy post about it! Read more here!

Hopefully this is the first step towards a tomorrow where Apple uses only clean energy. Right?

Anyways, the Good Company Wins!

This is Good Company Wins

The world is turning in to Mars pretty quickly, as we use stupid stuff like coal and oil to fuel our way of life.

That's super stupid, since there are loads of possibilities for us to live in a way that doesn't end up in environemental catastrophy.

Voting for the good guys is one way of ensuring we wont all die due to global warming. Another way is making sure that companies, small and big ones, make smart decisions when choosing their energy.

Clean energy and transportation might cost a little more in the short run, but is really smart in the long run.

This blog is basically us (a couple of happy Swedes) trying to encourage companies to make smart choices when it comes to the environement. Showing them that if you do something that's good for the environement, we're there on the sidelines cheering.

Hopefully, enough cheering will show other companies/countries/people that making the right choice for the environment does not only save the life of everyone, but gets you good stuff like new customers and good pr.

Let's make sure the Good Company Wins!
