Earth Day 2013

Earth Day comes but once a year, but that doesn’t mean we should ignore mother nature the other 364 days. Before everyone and their moms owned a PC, tablet, and smartphone – as well as those with other devices, like a digital camera, TV, Blu-ray player, iPod, and the list goes on – recycling just meant sorting the paper, glass, and plastic. Today, with the multi-gadget lives many of us lead, it’s hard to know what to do with all these old electronics. From buying eco-friendly smartphones and tablets to buying good-for-the earth accessories for those gadgets, we’re here to help you make eco-smart decisions.
