Is the Kindle e-Reader an Eco Friendly Christmas Gift?
Just how green is the Kindle?
Could the Kindle be considered an eco friendly Christmas gift – or a green gift at any time of the year?
How green and eco friendly is an electronic reader compared to printed books?
Their manufacture is not green, because resources are used and some components contain toxic chemicals. It is transported from where it’s manufactured to where it’s sold, it’s packaged and it’s doesn’t bio-degrade.
I was interested to read a study from CleanTech which shows that if you read more than 22 books on a Kindle over its lifetime, then it’s more eco friendly to use it instead of physical books.
So, consider a Kindle as an eco friendly Christmas gift.
There are lots of different Kindle e-Reader options – from full colour devices to paper white in different sizes. There are also lots of accessories, and stuff for kids. Have a look at all the options here – and then choose from a HUGE variety of e-books (many of them are completely free, most are reasonably priced).
