No, the title is not about the new shoots appearing as spring arrives (there still are some piles of snow around here as I write this). I’m talking about environmentally-friendly ideas. I just came across a site (actually I rediscovered it) that has some great resources. It’s the Green tab at the Digital Tips site, which is published by the CEA (the same organization that puts on the Consumer Electronics Show every year). On this page, you’ll find links to places that you can donate used electronic gear so that it can be reused, or you can find out ways to get it recycled responsibly. You’ll also find suggestions on ways to be smart about the electronic products that you buy, and how to save energy when using the ones that you have.
Yes, this is an industry-sponsored site, so you may find some points that you might interpret differently, but overall, it’s a good resource and a great place to start.
