    Is green hosting a waste of time? Should people feel bad if they don't use it? As with the scheme for electric cars, it might be that green hosting isn't really helping the environment. In addition, green hosting cost a lot more, so in a sense that might make it a scam.

    Finding niches is what business is all about whether real or imagined.

    The thread lists some pros and cons of green hosting. Obviously some believe it's an outright scam, or that the efforts to go green just don't really make a difference. Myself, I'm skeptical of green stuff, but I do try to recycle plastic and paper when possible, even though, unlike with aluminum cans, your not getting any cash.

    Anyhow, I don't think my link was the best resource on pros and cons of green hosting, as it's hard to find anything online. So many of the articles are biased advertising in favor of green hosting.

    Green hosting plays on the fact that their servers run on solar or wind power.
    In the grand scheme of things - does it really make a difference?
    If a company is about green or organic goods, I understand why they may use it.
    People like cheap services - green is more expensive.
    I would not use green hosting - I like the planet and nature but for the money I'll stick with cheap hosting.
