HomeThink Green - save money, energy and time with these tips and products!
Did you know that shopping with ComputerGear is a green way to shop? Many customers think that removing themselves from our mailing list will save paper (make sure you're on our email list so you don't miss out on free shipping coupons!), but did you know that:
ComputerGear is a member of the EPS Industry Alliance and an official loose fill recycle center. Find the loose fill recycling center closest to you! We reduce, recycle, and reuse every scrap of packaging material and plastic we can which is why the box you receive your order in may not be spanking new.
If Americans replaced two trips to the mall each year with shopping by catalog, we'd reduce our number of miles driven by 3.3 billion —- a 3 billion pound reduction in carbon dioxide and a savings of $650 million on gas alone.
Many catalogers use recycled paper and mail represents only 2.4% of America's municipal waste stream.
The production of household advertising mail consumes only 0.19% of the energy used in the United States.
Mail is made from a renewable resource -- trees planted specifically for paper. Actually, forest land in the USA has increased by 5.3 million acres in the past 30 yrs.
Direct mail is critical to the economic well-being of communities, businesses and charities throughout the United States. Last year it represented more than $686 billion in sales, supporting jobs at more than 300,000 small businesses in the USA -- the same small businesses in our communities that didn't get an economic stimulus package and need our patronage to survive!
You'll find green gifts at ComputerGear that save our Earth's resources and energy -- hydrogen powered clocks and calculators, wind-up kinetic energy batteries and LED lights, recycled component earrings, necklaces, business card case, solar energy desktop toys and more!
