It's Not Easy Buying Green

PC World:
It's easy enough to find paper towels, cosmetics, and cars that are good for the environment, but if you're looking to buy a green PC or cell phone, the task gets much harder.

It's not that the PC industry is at odds with Mother Nature. Many tech companies have been making big, public commitments to green products and processes.

Dell's Plant a Tree For Me program lets you make a small donation to two environmental organizations while buying a notebook or desktop PC. Retailers like Radio Shack and Best Buy have electronics-recycling programs for disposing of unwanted cell phones, batteries, and other products. (The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has compiled a list of recycling programs.) But when it comes to buying a product that's less toxic to the environment, knowing what your options are isn't easy.
