The Ethical IT

Many of our valued customers recognise the importance of 'green' issues, but unlike many providers of 'green' products and services, we don't hoik up our prices and penalise you for considering the environment. Were you aware that the manufacture of a single PC requires over 1.5 tonnes of materials, not to mention the consumption of more than 10 times its own weight in fossil fuels? This high energy use during manufacture is compounded by a PC's unnecessarily short lifespan.

While most green IT efforts focus on reducing power consumption, a true environmental impact assessment must study the entire product lifecycle. As 75% of the environmental damage occurs during the PC production process, extending a PC's usable life span is surely the most effective method of reducing their environmental cost. At The Ethical IT Company we like to keep it simple.
