Book vs Second hand book, Library, E-reader

Digital vs. Paper? It's often a heated debate about who's greener. In reality, both have an impact on the environment. The real question is to know a little more about the paper you're going to buy or the digital product you're going to download.
Indeed, a book with non-recycled paper will of course be less environmentally friendly than a digital book stored on your local storage or stored on green servers. And conversely, a book made from recycled paper will be more environmentally friendly than a digital product stored on energy-intensive servers.
While many may think the opposite, paper if it is part of a green approach (compliance with raw material standards etc.) is very environmentally friendly.
Finally, it's very simple, the difference between digital and paper is not big; just avoid non-recycled paper and be curious about the product you want.

Cloud vs Internal storage

Online storage is extremely energy-intensive. It's a no-brainer; in order to access a document at all times and on multiple devices, the document must be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
And to do this, the document must be available on a server and the energy required to maintain it is very important. Whether it is your emails, Google Drive documents, etc., they currently consume energy so that you can access them at all times.
To limit this excessive and unnecessary consumption, make sure to regularly store your photos or other documents in clouds on external hard drives and/or on your computer. They will be secure and reduce your environmental footprint.

About: Changing the way we think is the most difficult and necessary challenge for our species right now. It's like the old adage that says that "fish don't know they're in water." They're so surrounded by it that it's impossible for them to see. The water is like our ways of thinking. The assumptions we make about life have been so reinforced throughout our lives that we have difficulty seeing them. Yet our survival as a species depends us making the choice to understand, develop, and live from a new manner of thinking.

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future" Jon Krakauer

Mailbox vs Tempmail, Newmanity, YOPmail,

E-mails are also very energy-intensive. The simple fact of sending an image in an email has a very important ecological impact.
Unfortunately, each email sent is stored in your mailbox for life. The energy required to maintain this situation requires millions of servers.
To reduce this impact, there are now ephemeral email addresses that you can use in a unique way and that are automatically deleted after a few hours or days. Very useful when it is only a question of registering to a site or to receive an unimportant email!
So, when you need to send or receive an unimportant email, use ephemeral addresses.
The other solution is to delete your e-mails regularly, or to save them and save them on a hard disk.
