Hide details for Project Title & DescriptionProject Title & Description

This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 111-88. This project will expand the voluntary State Electronics Challenge into the Great Lakes Basin states of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota and will maintain it's operation in Pennsylvania and New York. Under the challenge, partners from state and local governments commit to: purchase electronic products that are more energy efficient and contain fewer toxins; enable ENERGY STAR power management features on electronics; extend computer life; and manage end-of-life electronics in an environmentally safe manner. Environmental outcomes include the reduction of toxic materials such as mercury and lead, greenhouse gases, energy use, municipal solid waste and hazardous waste. Such reductions in turn will lead to fewer toxic contaminants entering the Great Lakes from inappropriate disposal and through decreased energy use.
