(WTVO) — Sending e-mail is bad for the environment, according to a new study by British energy company OVO.
The company says electronic mail has a high carbon footprint.
Energy required from some email servers, networks and other machines create this problem, the company says.
According to research, over 64 million unnecessary emails are sent each day in the UK, adding about 24,000 tons of carbon a year.
OVO says e-mails containing messages such as “thank you” and “thanks” top the list for the most regularly sent unnecessary messages.
