Press Release Summary: Comic strip hopes to raise awareness of the impact made by consumer electronics on global CO2 emissions and the environment through humor
Press Release Body: Lester, the new Sustainable Green Technology Manager in the cartoon strip \"unripe\" (www.unripe.com) has declared this leap day to be a special day to raise awareness of "Green IT" issues. He recommends that consumers:
1. Gain awareness of the green policies of technology companies. 2. Consider not purchasing from companies that don\'t exert pressure for sustainable green practices within their organization and across their supply chain. 3. Develop an e-waste strategy for disposing of consumer electronics. This helps to reduce the amount of mercury, lead, cadmium, Beryllium, PVCs, and other environmental toxins that end up in landfills. 4. Enable the power management features in electronic devices.
While it is clear that Lester is serious about implementing green technology reforms, the fictional Technology Company he works for has other ideas. This will lead to many humorous situations that hopefully will raise awareness of environmental issues.
