Ever since college, Carl Foner has worked with computers. He realized a while ago that there was no way that society could eliminate the total impact that computers have on the environment, but there was a way to reduce it: use eco-friendly computer products.
That’s why Foner created Verdant Computing. All of the products on the site, from the external hard drives and laptop cases to the monitors and ink, must meet strict green standards before they are sold to customers.
Every product on the site meets at least one of these green standards:
- Made from recycled material
- Can be recycled
- Energy efficient
- Non-toxic computer parts
- Eco-friendly packaging
Also, almost all of the products carry existing eco-labels from other companies, such as Energy Star, which has already helped many U.S. families save billions of dollars on their energy bills. You can see the list of eco-labels here.
Carl Foner makes sure that Verdant Computing meets green business practices as well. The company provides Carbonfree TM Shipping, the office uses green power (generated by wind farms), compact fluorescent bulbs are used at night and the webhost is powered by solar energy.
If you use a computer daily and you’re looking for ways to make it greener, Verdant Computing is a great place to start.
You can find everything you need for your computer, and you’ll feel good knowing that it is safer for the environment.
