Greener Electronics Celebrated

Greenpeace has released their 4th Annual Guide to Greener Electronics. Companies are judged on criteria ranging from having a responsible labor-guideline, to improving energy-usage, removing toxic chemicals from production and effective e-waste recycling programs. While nobody has yet achieved a score of 10, Nokia is closest…making 8/10.

E-waste is huge environmental concern. And with every hot, new product-release like tomorrow’s iPhone, countless old phones will be thrown into the trash: containing lithium, cadmium, chromium and mercury. Instead of committing a big environmental no-no, you can either find out if the company that makes your phone offers a recycling service, or you can donate it here.
