Linux-Ecology-HOWTO

Introduction

Life is the first gift, love is the second, and understanding is the third.

Though computers can be seen as part of environmental pollution, there are also ways to use computers in a more reasonable manner to help protect the environment. So I have just started to collect some means to do so with Linux.

Objectives

Some objectives of the HOWTO:

  • Reduction in power consumption.

  • Reduction in consumables like paper and inks.

  • Reduction in waste by reusing older components or keeping them in service longer.

  • Reduction in toxic waste such as used batteries.

  • Use of Linux in environmental education and research.
