Today I learned
Today I learned about the tool Image Carbon ↗. It's a tool that helps you to calculate the carbon footprint of your websites images.
After entering a URL it will show you the amount of CO2 you could reduce by optimizing your images. It can achieve that by uisng the Sustainable Web Design ↗ model.
It checks every image on your page for the format and the size and tells you how you could improve on that.
Here are the results for my website: https://www.imagecarbon.com/sites/marcoheine.com ↗
Reducing your image sizes by compressing them and using better formats is not only better for your websites performance but also for reducing the carbon footprint.
I hope you enjoyed this post and learned something new. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me on Twitter ↗ or via Email ↗.
