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.
