With massive amounts of advocacy and progressions in modern technology, a green society is now easier than ever for us to achieve, and it will only get easier. The question is, will we put forth the effort to turn our society green before it’s too late?

What can we do, as consumers, to make sure that we minimize the impact we make on the environment? Greener energy is an obvious choice, but there’s also the issue of conflict minerals, which has never been more relevant to technology.
