iBec is carbon neutral for the third year in a row

The May 2023 Newsletter — 

For businesses, being carbon-neutral means offsetting all of the greenhouse gasses that are produced as a byproduct of the business. Some businesses utilize more fossil fuels than others, and there are some lesser-known sources (like cement production in the construction industry) that are responsible for emitting carbon. As a B Corp Certified company, iBec Creative is required to calculate and document all sources of greenhouse gasses that result as a part of our operation. For our company, this means heating, lighting, and internet for the office, as well as the commutes of all our employees.

Go green with your website

The massive data centers that power the Internet are the fastest-growing source of carbon pollution and will eventually bypass all other industries in terms of worldwide pollution. These data centers continuously pull large amounts of energy from their power grids, most of which are powered by carbon-polluting sources.

iBec is committed to addressing this growing problem — the data centers that power our web hosting servers offset 300% of the energy they use with clean, renewable energy put back into the grid. When you host your website with iBec, you can rest assured that your website has a negative carbon footprint and is not contributing to global carbon pollution!

We’re bringing Heelys back

Remember Heelys? The frequently-banned-from-school-hallways wheeled sneaker that came to fame in the 2000s never really left! You can still purchase your adult-sized pair online at www​.heelys​.com. When word got around to the iBec team that they had launched a $25 mystery sale, we jumped right on it! All you needed to do was let them know your shoe size and they would send you a pair of Heelys. They got dealer’s choice on the style and color of the shoe but interestingly enough, each pair seemed to suit the buyer…
