GreenDisk

GreenDisk — Kudos to GreenDisk, a company that recycles obsolete floppy disks and manuals to make fresh floppy disks, which Craig O’Donnell <[email protected]> recently brought to our attention. Craig writes, "These recycled diskettes come from big-league software publishers who need to ditch last year’s upgrade package or unsold inventory. The diskettes themselves – some 12 million last year – adhere to the high quality standards of major software publishers like Aldus and WordPerfect. The GreenDisk company claims that 98.9% of all materials it receives from publishers (including those hefty manuals and that slick packaging) is recycled. The diskettes are erased, relabeled with recycled-paper labels, and resold under the brand name GreenDisk. Egghead Software sells GreenDisks by catalog and vouches for their quality." [TJE]
