Green Electronics

More and more electronics companies are becoming Greener. Recently I saw a T.V ad for a Green television. I purchased a Green phone which had no toxic chemicals like lead or mercury, the packaging was 30% less than usual and no Styrofoam inside. Calling this a Green phone is stretching it but it is however more Green than others on the market and certainly shows an effort by the electronic company. The definition Green is widely used and until a certified Green label is on the market to show it is a true Green product consumers will have to be the detectives and look into it themselves before purchasing. Still it shows a definite trend into a Greener world of electronics. They now have bamboo hard drives and bamboo laptops who would have thunk it!
