EcoSmart and Energy Star Products – A Solution To A Cleaner PlanetSABJOL
Have you noticed these words EcoSmart and Energy Star on some of the products you use? Is that why you want to know more about what they really mean? Well, you are in the right place. In this blog we will go through everything you need to know about EcoSmart and Energy Star products and how you are participating in cleaning our planet when you tend to utilize them.
EcoSmart And Eco Friendly Products
We’ve seen that trend that went viral on saving the turtles. Everyone started using straws and carry them around to avoid using plastic straws. That was a Good Move! Today many franchises use paper straws and the number of businesses moving to paper straws is also increasing everyday.
There are many ethical and practical reasons companies commit to being leaders in the environmental space. First and foremost is the reality that we only have one planet, and we all share it. All businesses also have an impact on the planet, and that impact affects us all.
That is a choice we also made. We chose to add a wide range of various Eco friendly products and we are proud of it:
ASUS produces laptops with bamboo covers instead of plastic. Besides that, all their laptops rank well in terms of energy efficiency.
Targus environmentally friendly backpacks have earned the coveted Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification. In a process that involves breaking down and re-purposing recycled plastics, backpacks from Cypress production line with EcoSmart® collection built using up to 26 recycled water bottles.
Motorola seeks to design its products to be easily recycled. Many used phones are still in good condition and can be refurbished. Those that cannot be reused can be recycled, which reduces waste and the use of raw materials to make new phones. Motorola also promotes “Product Take Back Programs” for mobile phones and other accessories. They offer consumer education on product take back and mail-back programs. Agree to use third-party recyclers that comply with national and state electronic recycling laws.
Acer supports the concept of Individual Producer Responsibility and commits to bringing reasonably convenient methods of electronic product recycling to its customers. They offer a product recycling program to ensure that once a product reaches the end of its useful life that it is recycled responsibly.
Not only Logitech G and ASTRO Gaming products are certified CarbonNeutral®, but since CY10, they have financed the recycling of 30,992 tons of electrical devices, 2,797 tons of batteries and 16,993 tons of packaging.
Energy Star Products
Energy Star (trademarked ENERGY STAR) is a program established in 1992 and run by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) that promotes energy efficiency. The program provides information on the energy consumption of products and devices using different standardized methods.
ENERGY STAR products are the same or better than standard products, only they use less energy. To earn the ENERGY STAR, they must meet strict energy efficiency criteria set by the US Environmental Protection Agency or the US Department of Energy. Since they use less energy, these products save you money on your electricity bill and help protect the environment by causing fewer harmful emissions from power plants. And you get the features and quality you expect.
Since the 1990’s many companies decided to turn their products to energy star ones. In fact there were times when these companies decided to close an entire production line to start a new one that carried ENERGY STAR standards. They did not focus on the endured loss but rather on the generated gains.
We; too, decided to add the Energy Star products to our collections and proudly support them:
Dell Studio Hybrid develops compact desktops that come in 80 percent smaller than usual ones and use 70 percent less power.
Philips is a leader in developing sustainable, innovative, and energy efficient lighting technologies. It strives to improve people’s lives through meaningful innovation and shape the future with exciting new lighting applications and platforms such as light-emitting diode (LED) technology, which provides attractive benefits and never-before-possible sustainable lighting solutions, while delivering energy efficiency. Philips is a technology company that cares about people with a goal to improve the lives of three billion people a year by 2025.
Samsung Electronics were able to lower the energy consumption of their products by 39% compared to 2008. This means they were able to make a better-performing product using half the energy.
In 2019, LG Electronics expanded its commitment to ENERGY STAR by significantly increasing the number of ENERGY STAR models it offers, while participating widely in ENERGY STAR campaigns, exposing millions of consumers to the value of ENERGY STAR.
ViewSonic helps consumers save energy and money while helping the environment. They build energy saving features into all of their products. LCD monitors use up to 60% less electricity than standard models. They also went above and beyond to use 17% green energy to power their corporate headquarters.
WESTERN DIGITAL and SEAGATE
Like Western Digital, the Seagate drives under review have reduced rotation speeds compared to the 7200rpm “standard.” WD energy efficient drives spin at 5400rpm to reduce power consumption and noise. Seagate has chosen 5900rpm for their standard. Perhaps betting that the slightly higher speed will provide a performance advantage without sacrificing noise or energy efficiency.
