Put Your Green Where Your Desktop Is

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.  Everyone’s a skeptic, and your commitment to green has to be shown instead of told.  What better way to shout “environmentally friendly” to the world than your computer itself?

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.  And before you non-environmentalists scoff, the Recompute is no joke, packing a 500 GB hard drive, AMD Athlon II Quad-Core 3.0 GHz processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 8 USB 2.0 ports.

Just because the holidays seem to force materialism and the latest gadgets doesn’t mean you have to give in entirely.  How many eco-bloggers can say they have a working computer made of cardboard?
