Network IT is committed to helping the environment by keeping e-waste out of landfills. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates more than four million tons of e-waste hits landfills each year, with the numbers compounding every year. Much of this e-waste contains significant quantities of non-biodegradable toxic substances. Computers, servers, and other IT hardware contain mercury, lead, barium, arsenic, antimony, and cadmium. Flat-panel light displays contain mercury and CRT monitors contain lead.
Let’s all do our part and help reduce e-waste, be energy efficient and lower our carbon footprint. Adopt a green policy within your organization today;
- Extend the life cycle of your networking equipment and servers.
- Purchase used and refurbished equipment keeping it out of landfills.
- Buy used and refurbished equipment and help lower large amounts of fossil fuels created by new equipment production.
