Tea drinking while NOT using Google browser spares the environment?

Interesting tidbit here:

Unfortunately, I am often using my IPad to read up more on the tea I’m drinking, finding more places to try it, and/or talking about it on Steepster. How meta is that?

on the other hand….think about the carbon foot print of driving to the library to do research, picking up the phone to call every supplier etc etc…

there is also a social pressure implied when consumers are better informed. companies make choices such a better sustainable farming (which lowers carbon foot print) to draw in more consumers.

we cant irradiate being human but we can make wise choices. my wise choice is to use the net because i know that it does reduce the larger carbon foot print of my being.
