Electronics

Being Green Means:

Electronic devices are responsible for a significant portion of power consumption. Forrester estimates that the number of personal computers in use will increase from 1 bilion to 2.25 billion by the year 2015. Nearly half of the power transferred from the wall to the computer is wasted. By using low power, sleep or hibernate modes effectively, we can reduce 60% of the electricity consumed by the typical desktop computer.

Use power strips for electronics, and turn them off when not in use.

Electronics impact the earth after their useful life as well. An estimated 55 million personal computers ended up in landfills in 2005. The elements and compounds in electronic waste, or e-waste, including Lead, Barium, Chromium, Mercury and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) can leach into soil or scatter as particles into the air.

A good resource that helps purchasers evaluate, compare and select electronic products based on their environmental attributes is EPEAT. The system currently covers desktop and laptop computers, thin clients, workstations and computer monitors.

What To Look For:

* Energy-saving equipment that is durable and has a long life
* Manufacturers with responsible recycling programs (send a message with your spending)
* Used equipment that meets your needs and has life left in it

What To Avoid:

* Electronics fads
* Electronics that use batteries that are not rechargeable

Powered by a splash of water and a dash of salt, it keeps perfect time with no batteries. Sounds like magic, but its just simple science. Electrodes harvest energy from the water. A clock that improves the environment inside and out. We also recommend that cut a lemon in half and squeeze some lemon juice into the water tank.
