F: Buying refurbished reduces your carbon foot print
B: and helps save the planet
75% of the environmental damaged caused by a PC occurs during the production process. For every 1 PC base unit and screen which is reused, that is the equivalent of preventing 1.35 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions being released.
For businesses and individuals looking to reduce their carbon footprint, buying refurbished is one of the best ways to achieve this. Not only will it extend the lifetime use of a computer but re-using a computer is 20 times more effective at saving energy than recycling the materials for re-manufacturing.
To reduce the impact on the environment caused by our own energy usage we plant trees in a sustainable forest in the UK to offset our carbon footprint. If you would also like to further reduce your own carbon footprint you too can plant a tree with us using by using the Tree Planting product in the miscellaneous category.
