Inspired by the very elements that make Neutrogena® Naturals, each word, pixel and piece of content on this website is being brought to you by a Green Server that's the first of its kind. Our determination to find lower impact energy solutions, to reduce our carbon footprint, inspired us to build a self-sustainable, sun-fueled and wind-powered server that only uses renewable energy to keep our website running "off the grid," day and night.
Now that's using the power of nature.
At Neutrogena® Naturals, we're committed to minimizing our impact on the environment. Our products contain up to 90% natural ingredients, post-consumer recycled packaging, vegetable-based inks and a packaging process that uses 75% less water. We've set a precedent for sustainability and continue to raise the bar in everything we do.
The Green Server was a natural next step.
An energy efficient unit, housed in a stand-alone structure in suburban New Jersey, is powered by 12 solar panels and a 50-foot windmill. This self-contained, clean energy system generates enough power to host the Neutrogena® Naturals website and all its traffic without any need for external power.
This self-sustaining initiative challenges the way that electricity is currently generated, distributed and consumed—within the system known as "the grid"—which depends on mostly non-renewable, polluting fuels like coal, petroleum and natural gas to produce electricity. This, of course, leaves a huge carbon footprint.
The Green Server is only one of the ways we use ingenuity to create a smaller environmental footprint. If just 1% of all the sites on the Internet - 13 billion sites - chose to use the power savings of a Green Server, it would be like taking seven billion cars off the road or powering nearly five billion homes with electricity for one year. We hope our efforts, though they’re small steps, can help educate and influence the future of low-impact solutions for our customers and help to leave a lasting positive impact on our natural environment.
Day and night, the turbine converts the movement generated by the wind into electricity and transfers it to the Green Server's batteries.
The solar panels are made out of photovoltaic cells (solar cells) that collect light energy from the sun to generate electricity.
