CEA Celebrates Earth Day With Consumer Education Tool Empowering America To "Go Green" With Electronics
In celebration of Earth Day this Sunday, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA®) today announced it will significantly expand www.myGreenElectronics.org, the comprehensive consumer education tool designed as a “one stop” online resource for environmentally-responsible use, reuse and recycling of electronics.
The updated site, which will be accessible at midnight on Sunday, April 22, features new tools, including an interactive electronics energy consumption calculator and nearly 1,500 electronics recycling programs searchable by zip code, making the site the most extensive electronics recycling database on the Internet.
“With the addition of our new energy calculator, www.myGreenElectronics.org now is the most comprehensive website for environmentally-conscious electronics consumers. The site’s easy-to-use interactive tools and useful information support energy efficiency and promote responsible end-of-life product management by guiding consumers through every phase of a product’s life—from purchasing to disposal. CEA believes that by working together, industry and consumers can make a difference and have the largest impact on conservation and recycling,” said Douglas Johnson, CEA’s senior director for technology policy and international affairs.
The new www.myGreenElectronics.org also will include tips for extending a product’s life span with proper care, a repair versus replace decision tree and a database of corporate recycling programs and reuse options. CEA also announced that a city-by-city calendar for retail and municipal electronics recycling collection events is under development and is scheduled for release later this spring.
