Newer electronics are designed to be less toxic, longer-lasting, more energy efficient, and easier to recycle. This has contributed to major reductions in environmental impact.
A green electronics rating system called EPEAT recently released and shared this infographic with us. It illustrates the environmental benefits that have accrued since the electronics rating system first began registering green devices five years ago.
Benefits include reductions in power use, hazardous materials, solid waste, and greenhouse gas emissions. This is because when people buy electronics, they are buying devices with less environmental impact.
Here is the infographic:
