Facebook helps to save the environment. So the iPhone. Surprised? I was too old when I first realized, but after thinking it for a while, I'm bouncing on this orchestra.
Let's start with your iPhone or other smartphone in that case. How does it help with the environment? Think about it. Previously, you used your phone, camera, mp3 player, DS or PSP. These are four electronic items. Each one needs to be charged. All of them were packed in their own packaging. Each of them was individually shipped from where they were made, and each of them was usually picked up on separate roads. It produced four times as much carbon dioxide emissions. With its simple purchase of the iPhone, it has reduced its carbon dioxide emissions technology for three quarters. Is it impressive?
This is not all. The digital content distribution provided by the iTunes Store allows us to purchase music electronically for us. This means that there is no CD, no production of carbon dioxide, no carbon dioxide emissions. The bookstore means you do not need to ship books all over the world. Let's face it. The book is difficult and occupies a lot of space (compared to a CD). There is plenty of carbon during production and transportation. Despite the fact that wood is generally produced from sustainable sources, carbon reduction is significant. Downloading applications means that you will need to save all the harmful chemicals that are involved in the production of all the toy packs and the production of all the CDs and manuals. Another winner.
In addition, Apple knew that it would make its products environmentally friendly and sustainable. The phone is eco-friendly in the construction industry and in the exchange of information by means of information exchange, rather than purchasing physical products.
Facebook is another example of where physical products are transformed into digital products. It's easy to upload hundreds and thousands of photos to Facebook and everyone will see them. To do this, you have to turn to hundreds of copies and send them physically to people. Obviously, you do not want to send all your photos, but digital cameras and Facebook allow the photographer and the viewer to decide which photos to keep and which are not.
There are many other products and websites that help protect the environment. Usually involuntarily. Wikipedia has all the world's information about servers. Nobody ever wants to buy an encyclopaedia. YouTube allows all artists to distribute their videos to anyone who wants to watch it without packaging. WordPress and other blog sites allow anyone to write a book or blog, or whatever you want, and inexpensive and easy to distribute.
How can your business use this concept to convert physical elements into data and rescue the world?
