Greenpeace ranks our daily electronics

There are many ways that, as individuals, we can make a difference in our daily lives to lead a greener, more environmentally friendly lifestyle, but what about the things that are seemingly out of our control? 

When purchasing a big ticket item, such as a computer or television, how often do you consider the companies green initiatives?  It is something that may not always be considered when the price tag looks so good, but if you are interested in how green the manufacturer is before your next electronic purchase, the Guide to Greener Electronics might help.

The 17th annual edition of the guide, which is compiled by Greenpeace, ranks the worlds leading television, mobile phone and PC manufacturers on their policies and practices in the hopes that these manufacturers will “”reduce their impact on the climate; produce greener products; and make their operations more sustainable.””
