Mind the Spam!

You might be surprised to know that your unwanted, unread and spam emails too contribute to environmental degradation through carbon emissions.

This data is stored and backed up in data centres that run on electricity and if we delete our unwanted emails, we can directly reduce the load on these data centres. According to goodplanet.org, each mail accounts for 0.3 grams of CO2 and if all 3.9 billion email users (as of 2019) delete their ten unwanted emails from their inbox, it would reduce 39,035 metric tonnes of carbon emissions which is equivalent to carbon dioxide released from burning 19356 tonnes of coal.
