Automatically check the sustainability of a website with The Green Web add-on.
With the Green Web add-on, you can see the (or not so green) status of a website at glance.
Is the site running on green power? Hurray! Smiley face!
Is the site is still running on grey power, from fossil fuels? Boo! You'll see a sad face. Why not ask them to switch?
But wait! There's more!
If you search with Google, Yahoo, Bing or Ecosia, your search results will be automatically checked. Green links get smiley faces in the results.
If you're on a page with links to external sites, you can see if it the external site is hosted green too. Links to green sites have a checked green underline on them.
If you find a bug or have information on sites that should be green or grey and are not, please contact us by e-mail ay . For some country domains we don't have enough data yet to say anything usefull at the moment. If you can help us with any information regarding green hosting companies, please contact us.
