Harrisburg, Pa. - D&H, a leading CE and computer distributor, announced in honor of Earth Day the breadth of its "green" products -- those deemed ecologically friendly -- has increased by 20 percent over last year.
The distributor currently lists approximately 7,600 green-certified products, up from 6,300 at this time in 2011 and approximately 4,000 in January 2010 when the "Go Green" program launched.
Green-certified products are still in demand among D&H customers, who are projected to purchase these products at an average run rate of nearly 10 million items per year. This is the third year in a row that D&H's green line, and sales of these items, have seen notable growth.
Items are labeled green-certified when they use less power, incorporate renewable resources, are Energy Star or RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant, or have some other ecologically conservative characteristic.
"It's encouraging that environmentally attuned technologies have not been a flash in the pan," said Jeff Davis, senior sales VP at D&H. "The market wouldn't embrace this trend if it weren't generating actual efficiencies in the field. These products have created a viable and popular way for consumers and home-office end users to leverage powerful technologies while remaining both ecologically and economically smart."
