Earth Day: the technology industry has also entered the eco-friendly era with recycled materials

are known as products. eco friendly those that do not harm or seek to reduce the impact of harm on the ecosystem, either because they were made with recycled or biodegradable materials, they do not use chemical products or because they seek to reduce their carbon footprint.

These are some of the advantages of having planet-friendly technological products at home, according to the company Ezviz in a statement:

1. Less garbage: reusable products of high quality and durability help reduce the amount of disposable products and biodegradable products have a shorter degradation time, usually less than 1 year, which makes them more digestible for the planet.

2. Less investment: reusable products mean pocket savings.

3. Greater care: they mean energy savings for the planet because they are manufactured in smaller quantities to meet the needs of the population, they are also made with natural inputs.

5. Increased awareness: Buying ecofriendly products, turning off the lights and unplugging household appliances when they are not needed represent not only savings in your pocket, but also a break for the planet.

Here are some eco friendly technological products:

green computers

Green computers seek to take care of the environment through different initiatives.

The case of Wawa laptop stands out, manufactured in Peru, which stands out for being ecological and low cost. It has a portable solar panel as a source of energy and recyclable materials. It also integrates two free operating systems and GPIO ports that provide access to the development of Robotics, Home Automation and IoT.

The objective of this project is not only to be eco friendly but also to make equipment available to low-income students so that they have a useful training tool.

Also, there is the case of Acer Aspire Vero that uses a high degree of recycled materials in all areas of the product. The packaging has 30% recycled plastic in the chassis, which saves about 21% in C02 emissions, and 50% on the keys.

In turn, this computer integrates software that combines various energy-saving settings in the operating system, with a view to achieving optimized use for energy efficiency and battery life.

For its part, the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro series adopted low-power technology and long battery life, thus reducing the thickness of the equipment by 10% and maintaining the same charging capacity.

For this technology, the series was highlighted as the ecological product of the year in 2020.

ecological cell phones

the dutch company Fairphone focused on generating an environmentally friendly product since they hit the market in 2013 with their first mobile. Today they already have the fourth edition of their cell phone, which was presented at the end of 2021.

Fairphone ensures that it manufactures its equipment as sustainably as possible, using, among other things, responsibly and conflict-free traded tin and tungsten, recycled copper and plastic, and fair trade gold.

Solar cell remote controls

remote controls with solar cells for Samsung QLED 2021 products can be charged by sunlight or indoor lighting using the built-in solar cell panels without disposable batteriesyes

With this, it seeks to see results equivalent to the saving of 140 million AA batteries and the reduction of 8,250 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

Mice and keyboards with recycled elements

In this segment there are also ecological initiatives. Logitech reported that More than 65% of mice and keyboards, one of the largest categories in its portfolio, are made from post-consumer recycled plastic.

Some 8,000 tons of virgin plastic have been eliminated, which is equivalent to an estimated saving of 19,000 tons of CO2 throughout the life cycle of these products

ecological appliances

In this category, the Beko line washer and dryer can be mentioned, which are made with plastic waste that has been transformed into an alternative raw material to take care of the environment (approximately up to 60 0.5L PET bottles).

Besides, the RecycledNet oven has been made from extracted waste: fishing nets and industrial thread waste.

On the other hand, the RecycledDry dryer was designed with an average of 15% recycled plastic, including the water tank housing and the rear cover. It is estimated that thanks to this project, 2,420 tons of plastic were recycled during the last two years.
