“Green is not just a color for us, it is a complete business model”
Founded in 2010, we were established with principles that we adhere to this day
- Excellent customer service
- Top-notch service reliability
- Do it in the most sustainable and “green” way possible.
Over the years as our business model has evolved we’ve had many opportunities to expound upon our principles with our customer and our community
100% of our production equipment is obtained recycled, remanufactured, or purchased second-hand
When possible we acquire computer equipment/electronics that have already been produced and sold elsewhere. These devices are put to use in our office, data center, and serve as backup hardware for some of our customers. When our vendors offer trade-in or recycling credits we take advantage of then whenever possible.
We only recycle our own equipment with Certified Electronics Recyclers endorsed by the EPA.
100% of our office is powered by renewable energy
Every watt of power that our office consumes is generated via a rooftop solar array.
80% of our data center power is generated from renewable sources
Our data center provider releases regular reports on their carbon footprint, and we subscribe to their expanded power offerings that come from renewable sources. In addition, the data center’s generators use clean, ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel to reduce harmful emissions.
We choose our vendors carefully based on their environmental track record
Lowest cost is not always the best option. We are very selective of the businesses we choose to have a business relationship with their handling of waste taken very seriously by our company.
Why turtle? Aren’t they synonymous with ‘slow’?
Webster’s dictionary defines a turtle as: a slow-moving reptile, enclosed in a scaly or leathery domed shell into which it can retract its head and thick legs. But that only begins to scratch the surface.
Oh, I get it. This is a play on “The Tortoise and the Hare”.
Yes, but with a twist.
The moral lesson of the “The Tortoise and the Hare” is that you can be more successful by doing things slowly and steadily than by acting quickly and carelessly. This is true and represents a core value of ours.
Turtles have been on earth for 220 million years. They survived the perils that plagued the dinosaurs by hunkering down and slinking into the sea.
We are here for the long haul.
Time is hostile to technology as mother nature is to life on earth. Every component of the device you are reading this on is the result of approximately 40 years of progress. Imagine what it will be in 40 more. We will be there.
