Green is the new black

April 28, 2008

Green initiatives have been getting a lot of coverage lately, and recently NPR did a story on e-cycling, After the Techno Lust, There’s Always E-Cycling.  According to the story, “In 2005, the EPA estimated there was about 2.2 million tons of e-waste. And about 80 percent to 85 percent of that ended up in landfills,” with mercury, lead and cadmium winding up in the groundwater and the air. “Renee Montagne discusses various e-recycling efforts with technology expert Mario Armstrong.”  From the article you can link to a variety of e-cycling resources.
