Bitcoin is not green. That’s what they say.
First, try to answer this question:
Bitcoin VS Fiat, which is more environmentally sustainable?
It’s an hard question, once you take all the factors into account, it’s not that easy to give a definitive answer.

You don’t need an expensive and GPU / Mining rig and you won’t need much energy.
A raspberry Pi (last generation) is enough
And you will probably able to install a node on android phone soon to just support the network
