Today is America Recycles Day. Lenovo should do its part.
With our new release of the Story of Electronics, we’ve been pushing computer giant Lenovo to really go green and “make ’em safe, make ’em last, and take ’em back.” Lenovo is saying they’re with us, but we want them to prove it.
Just last week, Lenovo posted on their corporate Facebook page that they are pulling in record profits and beating out their competitors like HP and Dell (who are doing much better on the responsible recycling front). So, we want Lenovo to put some of that money towards going green. Join us on Facebook and tell Lenovo to: Put your money where your mouth is and really go green!
Here’s what you can do:
- Get on Facebook
- “Like” Lenovo’s Fanpage http://www.facebook.com/lenovo
- Post something on their page – you can’t post on their wall, but can add a comment to their most recent comment. (Here are a few suggestions below, but be creative!)
- Put your money where your mouth is and really go green!
- Be a green leader and recycle it right!
- Walk the green walk, don’t just talk the green talk.
- Post the Story of Electronics on their page with the message: Make ’em Safe, Make ’em Last, Take ’em Back
- It’s America Recycles Day. Lenovo, you should do your part.
Please post by 5pm pacific time, on Monday Nov 15 – in honor of America Recycles Day.
We want Lenovo to be a green leader and commit to:
- Work only with recyclers who are certified to the rigorous e-Stewards recycling standard;
- Make a real effort to get back their products in the U.S., by offering convenient, well publicized collection sites in all states;
- Provide full transparency on their recycling vendors, detailed vendor requirements, and volumes collected by state;
- Support federal legislation to stop global e-waste dumping from the U.S.; and
- Design out the toxics and design in closed loop recycling, so products collected can be recycled into new Lenovo products
Send a strong message to Lenovo and join us on Facebook to tell them: Put your money where your mouth is and really go green!
