Green computing is a term used to demonstrate the efficient use of computing resources to perform operations. It is the environmentally responsible use of computers and related resources [1].It consists mainly of having reduced resource consumption and suitable dumping of electronic waste (e-waste). This environmentally sustainable computing can also be defined as "the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using, and disposing of computers and associated subsystems such as monitors, printers, storage devices, networking, and communication systems efficiently and effectively with no impact on the environment [2].Green computing is an important topic nowadays. Not only because of the rise in energy costs but also to the dramatic and disastrous impact on our environment. The massive amount of computing manufactured worldwide has a direct impact on environment issues, and numerous studies are being conducted in order to reduce the negative impact on our natural resources. [3]

Energy to manufacture, store, operate, and cool computing systems has grown significantly in the recent years, primarily due to the volume of systems and computing that companies now heavily rely upon.[4] Green IT strives to improve company performance and efficiency whilst offering an attractive economical saving ease of use. The production and use of ICT equipment are energy consumptive, and this accounts for 2% of total carbon emissions. The use and dumping of ICT devices will continue to rise, leading to irreversible damages to the environment. In terms of performance-wise, computer design has grown astonishingly well and amazingly fast but...
