Turn Your Computer Green ? Become a State Electronics Challenge Partner www.StateElectronicsChallenge.net
The State Electronics Challenge (SEC) is a voluntary program that encourages and helps state, regional, and local governments, including schools, colleges, universities, and other public entities, to: Government agencies and organizations participate as "Partners" in the program. The SEC provides Partners with resources and technical assistance for improving electronics management practices, and offers annual recognition to Partners that have achieved specific goals.
 
So far, the Vermont Agency for Natural Resources, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, and the State of New Hampshire have signed-up.

Partners have the opportunity to obtain annual recognition for their accomplishments.  The SEC also provides Partners with resources to implement program goals for procurement, energy conservation, equipment reuse and donations, and recycling; and to calculate environmental benefits such as greenhouse gas emissions reductions resulting from these activities.  
Partner-only informational teleconferences and an on-line Discussion Forum provide further support and peer-to-peer information exchange. 
  
And, it?s easy and free to become a partner.  On-line registration is simple ? it doesn?t take more than 2 or 3 minutes to sign-up.

This project has been funded by a grant to the Northeast Recycling Council, Inc. from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
