How green is green? These days it’s just not enough to say you’re “eco-conscious” or even throw up a few pro-sustainability posts on your blog.

The Recompute is a desktop computer made of “food grade die cut C-flute corrugated cardboard” and held together with the sticky crafting standard of non-toxic white glue.
