If you thought browsing the web was  (mostly) harmless, then we hate to break it to you... it's not. 

From online shopping to streaming videos, the internet can greatly contribute to your carbon footprint. While more and more brands are promising to be carbon neutral, there's still a lot to be done. So, maybe think twice about spending all your internet time on certain websites.

Luckily, a new study by WebsiteToolTester analyzed over 200 websites to come up with the most-eco friendly pages. Check out the most eco-friendly websites below.

  1. Instagram
  2. Telegraph
  3. DpBoss
  4. Sogou
  5. Europa
  6. UK Government
  7. UK Census
  8. Missguided
  9. Facebook
  10. DuckDuckGo

We know, we know. A lot of the sites above aren't actually useful for many people, but the list at least brings attention to websites that produce and emit CO2.

In case you're wondering which site has the highest carbon footprint yearly is... it's YouTube. Which is not surprising at all since it's become the go-to for all kinds of videos and content with visitors watching videos concurrently.

The study also gives tips on how to make sure your site is energy efficient: "Make your content load faster and make sure your user experience is optimized, think about the data your site needs to load, and think about the power supplier your servers use."
