technology for a
greener tomorrow

We turn pixels and bytes into positive environmental change.

"Where technology, design, and environmentalism combine — we thrive."

Terrabyte is a green tech company focused on combining creativity and technology to provide solutions for the ongoing environmental crises. Our team is made up of passionate people that not only want to change the world for the better, but find creative ways to do so. We don't build carbon vacuums, microplastic filters, or even biodegradable cutlery — but we do develop projects for the digital world that create change in the real one.

Pixel Planet Today is a creative venture that pairs facts about the planet with pixel art designs. What started as a Design-365 project has since spun into a fully-fledged environmental-awareness endeavor, aiming to raise an appreciation for the planet using the power of nostalgia.

Wasted Space is a classic-arcade style game that drives home the idea of reusing and recycling. Fly a spaceship through endless enemies and collect metal from destroyed ships in order to upgrade your own! The pay-what-you-want open beta launches in June 2024.

Pinekeepers is a retro-inspired game that turns trees saved in the digital world into real-life saplings! This game is in the early stages of development, but will feature trees, wildfires, and of course, pixel art. Stay tuned for more information as we release it on our social media channels!

B2B software to help even small operations go green without the hassle. More information to come as development continues.

FAQs

What does the 'A' mean?

There is a lot of symbolism behind choosing the 'A' for our standalone logo, but to sum it up: it encompasses everything the company stands for and represents. The triangular 'A' is reminiscent of a tall mountain (many people think of mountains when they think of nature and the Earth), but it is also missing a piece (referencing the second part of our name, 'byte'). The letter 'A' also sits perfectly in the middle of our name, representing our goal to bring a new kind of balance between nature and human-created technology.

Is it all pixel art?

Just for now. Our first two projects are created using pixel art purely because it matches what those brands are about, but some planned future projects won't use pixel art at all (as it won't make sense in those contexts).

Is Terrabyte a business? Or is it a non-profit?

Terrabyte is a for-profit business, but like other purpose-driven companies, we do a lot more than push out products and take your money. While we are in our infancy, we strive to create environmentally-friendly products while being environmentally-conscious ourselves. Our project websites are hosted using green energy, and our operations are entirely plastic-free! As we grow, we will continue making eco-conscious steps for the company, including become a B Corp, help employees lead sustainable lives, and get all of our energy from renewable sources.

What makes Terrabyte unique?

Terrabyte isn't your average green tech company. While some green tech companies focus on bringing revolutionary devices and machinery to market, we are more focused on the tech that's already widely used today. We're not in the business of building carbon vacuums (as honorable as a profession that is), we're in the business of making it easier for the little guy to become more environmentally-conscious and actually become more environmentally friendly.

But even on the surface, it shouldn't take long to see what sets us apart. Since the beginning of Pixel Planet Today, we've been focused on using art and design to communicate climate challenges. We're artists first - the rest is just to make it more impactful.

What is a ".eco" domain?

Like other, newer TLDs (the ending of a web address like .com, .net, etc.), .eco domains help communicate the website's focus, even as someone is typing the URL. But unlike other TLDs like .shop, .website, or even .pizza - .eco is backed by a multitude of environmental organizations. World Wildlife Fund, Ocean Conservancy, IUCN, and over 50 others advise policies for .eco.
