If you are into sustainable living and eco friendly products, you might be interested to learn about the latest computers that all have many elements of sustainability, meaning their carbon footprints have been reduced. If you use a computer a lot you may work in web design or a related area but these days almost everyone uses a computer of some kind, be it ever so small.
- If you work as web designer or SEO and you’re on your computer all day, you might prefer a desk top PC. You’re in luck because DELL offers the LOOP desktop PC. All the parts are recyclable and rented out. They are updated weekly so you’ll hardly ever have to buy new parts. It can be assembled in 30 seconds or less because it is screw-less.
- So how does a computer made of paper sound? It may not seem like the strongest thing around, but have you ever tried tearing a thick sheet of cardboard? Hard, isn’t it? This little laptop is made from stacked sheets of paper. If anything breaks, you can simply replace it by more of the same and send the broken part back to be recycled. No waste means green.
- Another laptop is solar powered, with its own solar panel that folds out to power the device. This is ideal for those on the go who tend to sit in the park or drink coffee on the sidewalk while they are using their laptop. This will be a big savings in power use, with the solar panel being able to charge the computer whether it is opened or closed.
- Another laptop is made from starch-based polymers so the frame can be recycled as well as all the inner components. It can also shine a laser on the wall to project a screen, so you don’t really need a screen or a keyboard.
