Protect Your Right to Informed Purchasing

Help keep servers and computers green.The electronic equipment manufacturers appear to have succeeded in undermining the Obama Administration’s former efforts to encourage the use of toxic-free and energy-conserving computers and servers (EPEAT), as well as thwarting responsible recycling of such products.  Please read this piece by our coalition, the Electronics TakeBack Coalition (ETBC), and take the appropriate action today by writing a letter stating you support EPEAT!!  Thank you!! –Jim Puckett, Executive Director, Basel Action Network

An excerpt from the piece states:

“The EPEAT program gives purchasers a way to identify electronic products that meet a set of environmental standards.  The program has been used for several years by federal purchasers, state agencies, universities, non-profit, and private companies in the U.S. and increasingly in other countries. But now the Obama Administration is turning its back on this very successful program.”
