Reducing the environmental impact
of the electronics industry has been a hot issue lately -- and although it's inspired some wacky protests
and even the occasional CEO rumination
, there hasn't been an easy way for the average consumer to make environmentally-conscious tech purchasing decisions without doing a lot of research. Verdant Computing is hoping to capitalize on that market with their new store, which aims to only sell products that meet environmentally-oriented criteria like ease of recycling, energy-efficiency, eco-friendly packaging, and several others. In addition, the Verdant offices and servers are all powered with renewable energy, making the entire experience just a little more earth-friendly. It's nice to see companies take these types of steps to increase consumer awareness -- but it's even better to see how many products Verdant is already selling.
