Energy Star computers with least toxic contents
Computers that waste energy and contain hazardous chemicals
DID YOU KNOW?
If all computers sold in the U.S. met the U.S. EPA's Energy Star standards, we'd save about $2 billion in electricity each year, and reduce as many greenhouse gases as taking 2 million cars off the road. *
Toxic fire retardants can migrate out of computers into house dust. **
If You're Looking for a New Computer
It should be energy efficient/ Energy Star compliant
It should minimize the use of hazardous chemicals
Its maker should have a responsible takeback/ recycling program
Check out Greenpeace's newest "Guide to Greener Electronics." Among computer makers, Toshiba scored best in this round. Also look for a high rating from the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT).
