Only 0.07g of CO2 is produced every time someone visits the homepage. Cleaner than 93% of web pages tested. The website is supposed to be running on sustainable energy. However, it seems that Netlify is using AWS, which switches the CDN from US East to US West depending on the time of the day: one is green the other is not yet.

The website does not request third-party resources, except for the blog posts, which are calling to render web mentions.
