Every new computer and piece of electronics in your home or office probably comes packaged in expanded polystyrene (EPS), the lightweight white material often referred to as styrofoam.

Citizen Studio recently chose CO2Stats to offset citizenstudio.com. We chose this particular service for a few reasons: 1) it monitors and neutralizes the energy we're using for our site as well as that of visitors' computers and the networks that connect them; 2) it purchases EPA-endorsed renewable energy certificates (RECs) rather than unregulated carbon offsets; and 3) it allows our visitors to view the site's energy usage by fuel type and location.
