Which is the best laptop stand for me?

By Green ABLE

Their prices vary considerably, mainly due to differences in size, design complexity, as well as the types of materials used in manufacturing.

Written by Sarah Fernandes in collaboration with Mark Valentine

With pollution, plastics and recycling being front-of-mind for a lot of people at this point in time, the question that often springs to mind is who should be responsible for waste?  How often have you looked at the back of packaging after purchase only to see the dreaded words “not currently recycled”?  For those who are committed to recycling, there is nothing more frustrating.  Shouldn’t the packaging producers at least manufacture something that will make it easy for people to do the right thing?  It’s time to delve into the issue of extended producer responsibility.
