From the blog
Today is a great day. Not just for me, but hopefully for the whole WordPress community: the sustainability team for WordPress has officially been formed. 🥳
WordPress provides information about a website’s health, but not yet about its energy use and carbon footprint. Showing this information could help raising awareness around the issue and solving the problem.
In a previous post, I explained how I created a site about global warming a couple of years ago that loaded in as little as 7 kb per page. I decided that I wanted to make more of the idea of a slim website and its minimal impact on the environment.
A couple of years ago, I participated in a contest called 10k apart. The purpose was to build a site that is useable, accessible, compatible with older browsers and can load in less than 10 kb. In this post I tell you the story of the site I created.
Carbon Footprint plugin
I am working on a plugin called Carbon Footprint to bring the information from the Website Carbon Calculator to WordPress’ Site Health feature.We, the recently formed official Sustainability Team, hope to raise awareness around digital sustainability this way.
I’ve designed and built a site for CAFYR, a project at the University of Antwerp about age in children’s books.
The prize of Dutch literature
I have built the website for the organisation of the ‘Prijs der Nederlandse Letteren’ to easily enable them to put new laureates in the picture and keep an archive of past winners of the prize
I am working on the story and the brand identity of my small company, LittleBigThings.
I am further optimising the greener infrastructure to launch, host and support WordPress websites.
When people talk about travelling to the past, they worry about radically changing the present by doing something small. But barely anyone in the present really thinks that they can radically change the future by doing something small.
