Paint It Green

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 [1] at 1971 Shattuck Avenue. Customers will be able to drop off their old electronics computers, cell phones and batteries.

GreenCitizen is able track where each item is sent after it is dropped off in order to ensure that it is sent to one of two plants in California, where it will then be recycled or re-used. Ultimately GreenCitizen hopes to “reduce everyone’s carbon footprint.”

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