Earth Friendly,Computers,Notebooks,…Go Green!

Looking into different companies that carry earth friendly or go green earth. I found that there is a company that measures the standards of electronic products for desktops,laptop computers, thin clients,workstations and computer monitors. The company is called EPEAT. They rate products based on 23 required environmental performance criterias. They rank companies by using Gold,Silver or Bronze if they comply with environmental practices. The EPEAT is supported by the US-EPA.

The benefits to our world is: They reduce use of toxic materials, including mercury by 1021 metric tons, equal to the weight of 510,949 bricks. And…

They eliminate the use of enough mercury to fill 149,685 household fever thermometers, which precludes the disposal of 43 thousand metric tons of hazardous waste,equivalant to the weight of almost 22 million bricks.

Due to EPEAT’s requirements products meet Energy Star’s energy efficiency specifications these products will consume less energy through out their useful life resulting in: Savings of over 8.39 billion kwh of electricity-enough to power over 700,000 homes a year. Avoidance of 34.2 million metric tons of air emissions (including greenhouse gas emissions) and over 71,000 metric tons of water pollutant emissions.
