Green Teen Week: Tune Your Tech

Computer picNow that school's out for summer, green teens can focus more on their eco-friendly deeds. With that in mind, this week's tips are geared toward youngsters.

Tip #1: Gadgets Galore 

Most teens love having the latest gizmos, so if it's absolutely necessary to buy a new iPod, camera, or cell phone, consider environmentally preferable options and products that contain fewer toxic elements, are energy-efficient, or use recycled materials to encourage manufacturers to design green. As for the stuff you're replacing, be sure to donate or recycle it. Used computers that still work can be given to families or schools that couldn't otherwise afford them, which would also prevent more e-waste from heading to the landfill.

Tip #2: Rebel Responsibly

Tip #3: Set a Trend

Tip #4: Eco-Music

Tell us: What are your favorite eco-friendly electronics?
