Delete the files you don’t need from the cloud

Did you know?

Despite being held in the “cloud”, your data (pictures, videos, music, etc) still needs to be physically stored on a device somewhere.

Companies offering Cloud services need to have huge warehouses filled with servers which are running 24/7/365.

These data centres are extremely polluting. They consume huge amounts of electricity 24/7 and require robust A/C systems to keep all these servers at the right temperature without overheating.

Reduce your footprint by asking yourself: Do I really need all the files I hold on the Cloud? If you have old files that you don’t need, delete them! It will reduce the storage needed and your footprint 😉 Easy!
