Affordable and Clean Energy
We rely on solar energy in 58 locations across Iraq to cover 15% of Earthlink’s need for energy, as we are aiming to reduce dependence on fossil fuel associated with gas emissions.
We are contributing to accomplishing this goal by providing a monthly subvention for children who have lost their parents in Baghdad and Nasiriyah governorate.

Earthlink is willing to control the devices waste such as computers and Internet infrastructure because electronics contain lead which can damage our central nervous system and kidneys.
E-waste contains hundreds of substances, of which many are toxic. This includes mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium, selenium, chromium, and flame retardants.
