Electronics and the environment

"Under its new Environmental Sustainability Policy, California's 10-university system will only buy electronic products certified by EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool). EPEAT evaluates computers, laptops, and monitors for harmful chemical content, ability to be recycled, and product longevity. The new e-waste policy also requires producers to take back and either recycle or reuse computer components."
