Why are we doing this? . The green movement has taken off significantly in virtually every industry. Visible examples include the success of hybrid vehicles, alternative energy, and green building. The fashion, food, and building industries are all embracing sustainable design with fervor, so why is the $150 billion dollar consumer electronics industry lagging so far behind? We believe that the consumer electronics industry is poised for rapid transformation, and we want to help usher in this new era with smart and innovative product design.
