  • 4.9    Panasonic - Advance from 12th to 10th place for energy efficiency and PVC-free product range, but still bad on e-waste.

Rankings of purchasing viagra policy, not greenness of products
written by Carl Hage, July 03, 2009
Note, Megan's excellent wording, "it ranks leading electronics companies on their policies". It would be nice to know which products have the least environmental impact, e.g. use less energy (to make and on line perscription for viagra use), are recyclable, don't use toxic materials, etc., but this system doesn't measure that. I have had a problem with the Greenpeace scoring system because it is http://ojalafilms.com/generic-form-of-levitra just a summed checklist on generic viagra indian fda having certain corporate policies (some even political). Great graphics, but not much to do with green electronics (it's green corporate policies instead).

(I'm sorry for the off-topic but the contact button on top doesn't work.)

You have never wrote a post on the Kitegen, and I wonder why, since this Italian project is the most advanced in high winds power generation projects.
The power plant you see in the animation is being built right now:

Notes:
- the 2 turbines in the video work only for the time in which the kite does take off,
- on kitegen.eu you can see the viagra prescription label 1 Gigawatt "carousel" project.

Seems a bit disconcerting for all of us to be surrounded by products with potentially hazardous toxic chemicals in them. Maybe manufacturers need more carrots and sticks to green up their behavior?

Green Electronics & Energy Efficient Electronics
written by Sustainable Living, July 06, 2009
There is a website out there that ranks electronics on their energy efficiency: http://www.greenefficientguide.com
Good for finding out which electronics have the lowest power draw (both on and in standby mode).

It would be nice to have green ratings for PC component manufactures like ASUS, Gigabyte, Western Digital, Seagate, and etc. Some of us build our own computers and don't buy out of the box units from Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba or whoever. Of course, I'm more interested in knowing about the greenness of there production lines and the materials that compose the product, than the energy consumption... which you can kinda figure out here
