easy to be green - browsingGLOBAL – Did you know that updating your Facebook status once on your PC consumes the same amount of energy as updating it a hundred times on your phone? In a bid to make us all kinder to planet earth, over the coming weeks we’ve got a series of videos showing how easy it is to be green. This time round we’re looking at browsing on-the-go.
