The Eco-Friendly Techie:
Living Green in the Technological Age
(Computer Recycling and buying used)
Many of us are looking for ways to go green, without sacrificing the modern conveniences that make are lives easier and allow for us to conduct business in a more effective way. If we all play our small part, we can help the environment, while still being able to maintain our modern, technologically advanced way of life. So, here are a few ways in which you can “live green” in the technological age and be an eco-friendly techie:
- Turn off your tech gadgets when not in use. This may seem like an obvious suggestion, but many of us are guilty of leaving our computer and other tech gadgets on even if we aren’t using them at the moment. So, when you aren’t surfing the web or typing up that report-turn of the computer to save energy.
- Select green tech appliances. Make sure that your pc or laptop has an energy saver logo on it, and always use the appliances that use the least amount of energy when you have to go online or type something up. Keep in mind that a laptop uses much less energy than a computer, and mobile devices use even less energy than either of the aforementioned gadgets. Just a note: there are also computer companies who are actually considered to be more eco-Friendly than others, such as HP, given that they offer computer recycling and adhere to a strong ethical code as well.
- Recycle your old technology. Most of us are also guilty of having an old computer or laptop laying around that is just taking up space. Why not recycle those old computers, laptops or printers by calling or emailing Computer City Repairs in Los Angeles, and having them recycle your old tech items for you. Then you can have the room to purchase new items and don’t have to worry about finding a recycling site to get rid of the gadgets that are cluttering up the office.
- Purchase pre-owned computers. Computer City Repairs in los angeles also has an impressive selection of pre-owned computers and laptops. Not only is buying a used computer a great way to be eco-Friendly, but it’s also a great way to save some money as well.
