Earth 911 is actively pursuing international expansion to provide public information service to the citizens of the world. Reducing, reusing, recycling and other sustainable practices: everyone needs information on protecting the environment in their own backyards.
Reuse and recycling prevents electronic items from reaching landfills, creating less waste, providing usable items to organizations that need them and recapturing valuable resources.

CO2 Saver is a lightweight program that manages computers’ power usage when it’s idle, saving energy and decreasing the demand on your power utility. The less electricity produced, the fewer harmful emissions and greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide are released into the atmosphere. What’s more, CO2 Saver shows the amount of CO2 you’ve saved single-handedly, as well as all other CO2 Saver users combined.
