Hey there, a special post today:

@greenfediverse is a project that lets people know which Fediverse instances use environmentally friendly hosting services.

You can see the current list at:

However, the list now has to be updated, and the project urgently needs a script coder to help with this. Can you help?

If you are interested, please DM the project leader at @greenfediverse
