CybrHost is going green by staying home. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day 2010 all CybrHost employees will be working from home on Wednesday, April 21st in an effort to minimize their energy footprint for the day.
“We are working to become a certified green corporation. We are reducing our carbon footprint, planting trees to improve the environment, and exploring carbon offset credits to reach carbon neutrality”, said Matt Whitted, Hosting Director.
“We’re recycling, we’re pursuing ‘green’ supply alternatives, and we’ve instituted a corporate process that considers the green status of our office and data center from the highest levels.”
CybrHost is also celebrating Earth Day by planting a tree for each new customer during April and May. Trees will be planted locally in northeast Ohio, where they will help reduce pollution, offset carbon emissions, improve water quality, and provide natural habitat for wildlife.
“We feel a personal responsibility for our local area, and have made personal commitments to it. We maintain 40 acres of urban woodlands at our home farm, and continue to make personal investments in our nation’s ecology”, said Linda Zack, Vice President and part owner. “Now CybrHost is joining the effort. We have a ways to go, of course, but we’ll continue to pursue carbon neutrality through carbon reduction in our business and through local tree plantings.”
CybrHost plans to keep customers and the community updated on their progress at their Going Green website, http://www.cybrhost.com/green.
