Unwanted emails result in unnecessary carbon emissions. Every email owner has an opportunity to decrease their carbon footprint by handling unwanted emails. In 2019, it was reported that 107 billion spam emails were sent a day. To be constructed, sent, and stored, each email consumes energy. Spam emails are estimated to emit 0.3 grams of carbon dioxide. The average American has 500 unread, spam emails, meaning if they were to be deleted, approximately 150 grams of CO2 would be removed from the air. Therefore, by deleting your unwanted emails, you are lowering your carbon footprint.
