The ComicWeb is Going
we are going more to a sickly shade of green then truly 100% eco-friendly,
green, but we are working to get there.
The main change we are making is investing in carbon
offsetting. Our web hosting provider (Hostgator) is using windpower
to create the electricity used in their servers. Our homebase is also
purchasing wind power. (However, our home base wind power is more
of an offset type of deal rather than strictly from wind turbines.)
We realize that carbon offsetting is not as good as just not putting
carbon into the environment in the first place, but it is a good first
step. In addition we are:.
- Using recycled packing materials in our shipments
- Using recycled envelopes in our shipments
- We are embracing downloadable products. Our
old time radio programs are downloadable as are the golden
age comics we sell (in pdf format).
- Comic Books are both wasteful, AND a good example of reuse. Each
month hundreds of comic book titles are published by DC and Marvel,
not to mention all of the other companies. Does the environment
really need a 5 issue mini-series on the Dazzler? On the other hand,
comic book readers generally don't throw away comics. So, if you
wanted, you can pick up the original Dazzler series (from the early
1980s) on ebay. So we encourage people to read and resell their
comics, and yes, if your comic collection is too embarassing to
put into the .25 cent bin at a convention, maybe it is time to recycle
them.. In addition, we will be exploring the concept of comic books
in pdf format.
- In general, we will just be much more aware
of our eco-actions and take our impact on the environment into consideration
(reduce, reuse, recycle) along with the millions our business makes.
