Since their launch back in 2003, A2 Hosting has been headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan - aka "Tree Town" – boasting its 50,000 trees and 150 parks. This is just one of the reasons that the team at A2 Hosting feels it’s their duty to contribute to the fight against climate change. The goal of their FutureServe Green Hosting initiative is to help protect the environment for future generations, while offering excellent server hosting and support to its clients. 

Through their partnership with Carbonfund.org, A2 Hosting has supported global reforestation efforts and continued development of clean, renewable sources of energy in order to mitigate their operational emissions.  Their annual offset donations have neutralized over 2.25 million pounds of greenhouse gases.   In addition to being 100% carbon neutral, A2 Hosting has implemented a number of green policies like employee telecommuting practices and the re-use of older hardware to help reduce its operational carbon footprint. 

A2 Hosting cares about our environment and they care about providing the highest level of service to their customers.  Their 24/7/365 support staff work hard to ensure all client servers run at peak performance.  When you have a question, you’ll speak to a real person at A2 Hosting – client support service is never outsourced.  The service results show through the many industry awards that A2 Hosting has received over the years.  A2 Hosting also offers informational blog posts and customer referral programs to its clients.  

A2 Hosting is focused on ensuring their customers also get the fastest hosting speeds available through their exclusive Turbo Servers, offering up to 20X faster page loads compared to most competing hosts. 

Carbonfund.org is proud to partner with A2 Hosting and recognize their industry leadership through their long-term commitment to offering carbon emissions neutral operations for their many high speed hosting solutions to its customers.

So, you're having a baby...Congratulations! What better gift to give your new bundle of joy than fresh clean air!  Whether you’re a brand-new parent, busy raising kids or playing with your grandkids, caring for our environment to ensure its health for future generations should be a top concern. 

One of the ways you can help support a healthy environment is to carefully select the products you purchase and the businesses you choose to support.  Looking for strong sustainability programs and commitments to environmentally-responsible operations will enable you to support those companies that are doing their part to protect the environment. 

For the past six years, CarbonFree® Business Partner Baby Rain, a leading online baby products retailer operating both www.pamperedtot.com and www.babychecklist.com, has neutralized all carbon emissions from its annual business operations and product shipping. 

"Our business is booming! With our success comes a need for more packaging materials, marketing collateral, and fuel to power the vehicles used to deliver our products to thousands of customers across the USA and around the world,” explains Greg Charlap, Owner of Baby Rain. “As a business, we not only want to offset our growing footprint, but would also like to educate our customers about this worthy and necessary cause. Carbonfund.org helps us do both!"

Through the CarbonFree® Business Partnership, Baby Rain makes investments in carbon-offsetting projects, such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reforestation. Each project plays an important role in the fight against global warming. 

In addition, Baby Rain plants a tree through Carbonfund.org for every stroller order they receive - a great way to give back and replace resources they use.  These ongoing commitments to environmental responsibility make Baby Rain a great choice for baby care products from a company that’s helping to protect the planet’s future.
