Ironically technology has saved trees :)With innovations in cloud services and mobile services and the advent of digital data in general has lead to the reduction of paper consumption. But I can see where you are getting at, more technology implies more energy consumption. Usage of these energy resources generally have an adverse effect on the environment. Although, bear in mind technology can assist in solving wastage and the environmental impact we produce with our living standards, a good example would be venturing into sustainable energy technologies.
