Want to make sure that your next IT or computer purchase is environmentally friendly? Unfortunately, there's no equivalent of the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for making sure that your hardware is as green as possible.

However, there are some organizations that rate PCs, laptops, and printers for how environmentally friendly they are. Follow their advice, and you'll go a long way for buying hardware that's as green as possible. In the long run it will pay off -- not just for the environment, but for the bottom line as well, because the greener your hardware, the less power you'll use.

Whether you're buying hardware for a large corporation, a medium or small business, or your home, here's where to go for helping make sure the hardware you buy is environmentally friendly.
