I’m sure you’ve heard me mention a thousand times how my Twitter (and Facebook) friends always come through for me. I ask a question and they always respond – and they’re quick about it, too. No waiting for feedback…almost instant gratification. Well, I’m still singing the praises of the folks on Twitter because today I DIDN’T ask a question but I got great information anyway! How cool is that?!
You know how I’ve been trying to be more “green” both personally and with my business? Today, while on Twitter, I learned about a new way to continue “greening.” Is that a word? Is that the correct use of the word? Anyway, I digress. Here’s my point — There’s a cool way to get rid of all that electronic stuff piled up around your home or office, you know, the CPU that you don’t want to get rid of yet because you might have sensitive info on it or your very first 50 lb laptop that you’re sort of sentimentally attached to? Maybe it that’s CRT monitor from 1986 with a huge backend…or your old car phone. You know, the stuff that’s taking up much needed space and creating clutter?
Want to know how to get rid of all that clutter and be a bit enviro-friendly? At the risk of annoying my PC friends, I’m going to tell you about a APPLE’s electronic recycling program. Don’t worry, I’m still a PC girl but if there’s good news out there, I’m gonna share it. I love that Apple is committed to helping the environment and that it’s enhanced it’s recycling initiative to include a computer take back program. The cool thing about this new “green” thing is that it’s FREE! …and free is really good in tough economic times.
So, here’s how it works…
Old Computers. If you buy a Mac, you can send them your old computer and monitor – even if it’s not a Mac. Nice, huh? So, buy a Mac and send the old one back.

Old Cell Phones. Remember those huge, gray flip phones that used to be so popular? If you still have one, PLEASE send it to Apple. They’ll take any mobile phone regardless of who manufactured it. Click here for details.
By the way, thanks to Daily Green Project (@greenproject) for the tip on Apple’s free recycling program!
