Sustainability shouldn’t be a trade secret, so our code isn’t either – we're open-source and free to explore anytime. You can even volunteer with us to make your own impact: We've laid out our plans from a content hub for case studies and education, to improved search features, ideas around lessening our environmental load and a few other fun things.

This is Version 1.0: get in touch and we'll share our best laid plans for you to consider volunteering.

When new listings get submitted, they get directed to our repository on GitHub, where you can double-check info and see if it meets the criteria. We've done this quite a few times ourselves .... and discovered that it's a fun to learn about sustainability by looking under the hood. Give it a try?

What we're doing now

Dithered images reduce file size and brings the download per page down.

System fonts are already installed on your machine, which means we don't have to load any font files. This brings the download per page down.

Limited data fetching means less external requests on servers, less cold starts, more data cached to save trees and your bandwidth.

Not using phsyical materials means that Waste Not is recieptless and conducted online. We also like to ride our bicycles to work :)

That's all Folks!
