greenSince it’s Earth Week and all, we figured that we would bombard you with more eco-friendly stuff. Coinciding with Earth Day, a new e-waste center, GreenCitizen, will open tomorrow at 1971 Shattuck Avenue. Customers will be able to drop off their old electronics computers, cell phones and batteries.

Hopefully this store will inspire us to actually recycle the ever-growing mountain range of batteries in our rooms.
