Greenpeace have congratulated ACER recently, due to their announcement of two new notebooks, aimed at nature-concerned crowds exactly. The notebooks in question are the Acer Aspire 3811TZ and Aspire 3811TZG, which have been designed with extreme energy efficiency in mind, as well as being highly recyclable and biodegradable.
The computers contain no PVCs as well as no BFRs, taking a bold step forward in designing green technology. PVC has been used very widely in designing computers, as it’s both durable and cheap – however, Greenpeace have expressed a lot of negativity towards its use, as it’s not biodegradable and emits harmful toxins into the environment.
BFRs, on the other hand, are added to plastic to give it flame retardant properties, but it’s also been proven to be highly toxic and harmful to the environment.
By removing these elements from their design, ACER are doing a lot to help protect our environment – and with the energy efficiency the laptops have been designed with, they’re sure to be a winning purchase if you’re looking to protect your planet.
