Eco Friendly.


Rupert The Tailor are about the environment. As an Internet company, we do not have big city offices to heat, or retail shops with the doors open onto the street pumping out heat. We all walk to work. We have some warehousing, a small office and servers. The servers we run on reusable energy. Yes, that's right, 1% of all power used in the world, is now used by computers, so we are led to believe. So when you buy from us, you know that we are trying to do our bit in our small way, and that helps you do your bit.


We also try to do the following:


  • We run our business with as little paper as possible.
  • We do not print a separate catalogue.  Our catalogue is on-line.
  • We turn off computers we do not need overnight.  
  • We recycle what we can.
  • And even compost what we can!


If you want to know more about where we host, and how they do it, have a look:  We use UK Fast.


They use servers that use less power than most, using new technology.  And to offset the power used, they are planting trees in Wales. We cannot yet run our servers on renewable energy, it is not yet practical. But rest assured, when we can, we will. 


Recently for the office in 2011, we have added 17 Sanyo HIT 235W solar panels. That means that during the day, while we work, we now pay for less electricity!
