Sony comes out with eco-versions of the VAIO

Sony took a beating in last year’s Greenpeace report on the green efforts of the top electronics companies, and clearly, the company felt the sting. This year, they’re doing a lot better, with some Sony Ericsson phones and a Vaio ranking decently in the organization’s electronics guide. They’re trying to step up their efforts, however. The Graphic Splash Eco Edition promises to be a lot more eco-friendly by offering the following features:

  • Slim design for minimum use of natural resources
  • Easy-to-recycle materials for resource conservation
  • Packaging comprised primarily of recyclable materials
  • RoHS compliant components—free of lead and other hazardous materials
  • Glad to see they didn’t limit themselves to simply flaunting designs inspired by nature and that they actually took steps to make the laptop more environmentally friendly.
