New Lenovo Laptops Partially Made From Post Consumer Recycled Content

Lenovo recently shared with the world news of some new ThinkPad laptops it will be releasing which it believes are “the greenest on the market by integrating the highest amounts of post consumer recycled content.” These new models of the L Series are designed for business uses and will be available in mid-May for prices starting at around $650.

The Lenovo ThinkPad L Series, consisting of the L412 and L512 laptops, use “up to 30 percent post consumer content from office water jugs and used IT equipment in parts like the LCD cover, palm rests and top/bottom case.” The L512 in particular “contains 18 percent post consumer content (PCC) total, making it the industry’s highest amount of PCC in a laptop.” Both laptops are also Energy Star rated for energy efficiency and Epeat Gold certified for “environmental attributes.”
