Congratulations to Seventh Generation IT intern Emily Bates on partnering with Lenovo to improve sustainability worldwide.

On February 3, Emily contacted Lenovo to recommend that they no longer ship CD’s with their monitors, as all this information and software is available online. Lenovo’s director of Environmental Affairs responded to her suggestion on February 18, letting Emily know that within the next two months Lenovo would cease including CDs with 28 of the 30 monitors they ship – saving tons of plastic and paper sleeves that otherwise usually ended up in the trash.
