Roundup: E-recycling at Best Buy, and more items noted for chemicals

Best Buy launched a test program that lets consumers recycle their unwanted TVs, computers, and other electronics so the gadgets don’t end up in landfills, the Associated Press. The program comes as retailers are facing increased pressure to offer recycling programs, and Best Buy’s is considered the most extensive free program offered by a major retailer. “We want to take the time to learn if we can handle this before we go any further,” Best Buy spokeswoman Kelly Groehler told the AP. “We know the need is there and the waste stream is there. We think everyone needs to bear some responsibility for this — consumers, retailers, and manufacturers.”


The Environment Report says most shampoos and cosmetics contain a chemical that might cause cancer.

Electronic books (like the Kindle) show strong sales, reports TreeHugger.
