It's the Environment, Stupid.

Greener Consumer Reports

I know a lot of stuff passes under my radar (and above it for that matter) but I somehow completely missed Consumer Reports environmental website GreenerChoices.org, which was launhed on earthday of '05.

However, their virtual Electronics Waste Reuse and Recycling Center did recently open, offering tips on what to do with all those pesky, unwanted cell phones, computer monitors, and other e-bits and pieces you can't bring yourself to get rid of the old fashioned way.

Not only does the site give you tips on how to dispose of it, it also helps you determine if it is fixable (if your unwanted e-item is in fact broken, and not just out of fashion.) And as an added bonus you can download a 47 page e-waste survey released in March of 2006! (this is actually very interesting and gives a little insight on the 'why' e-waste is generated and 'how' people dispose of it.)

  • I was excited to see that, too. If you check out the NC Office of EE Web site at www.eenorthcarolina.org we have an informed consumer section under resources that has resources like green consumer reports but I'm always looking for more!

Sub prime is the industrial pseudonym for persons being rated as poor creditors.To find cheap auto loans, auto refinance visit http://www.consumerautolending.com

  • Hi,

    There are several ways to get product reviews. You can consult a large publication like "Consumer Reports" or visit their website www.consumerreports.org. However, reports that you will find from Consumer Reports will be written by Magazine editors and sponsored by the manufacturers of the product. I am not sure if you can trust those reviews.

    On the other hand, you can review consumer reports posted on www.pissedconsumer.com. Consumer reports posted by real consumers. You get a perspective of real users of the product or service.

    I hope my comment will help you to make the right decision.

    Regards,
    One of the new great ways to learn about consumer repor

  • I find your blog very useful. Consumer reports at the present time can be very helpful. In case you want to buy something from this or that company you should first learn about other customers’ experience with the company. Personally I do this every time. It is the best way to protect yourself from bad customer service and poor quality products and services. There is a very good site - www.pissedconsumer.com, where you can find a bunch of consumer reports concerning literary all the companies.

  • Oh, a great blog. It is so interesting and rather informative. There is something I would like to say about consumer reports. Whoever started that is a genius. They do work. One thing when people claim to their relatives or friends and it is completely different when this or that problem is made public. There is this great site www.pissedconsumer.com. There you may find hundreds or maybe even thousands of consumer reports about almost every company.
