Add Dell Inc. to the list of computer and office equipment makers that are touting materials-related choices in their marketing efforts. The company today announced that its new OptiPlex 960 desktop PCs have at least 10 pecent post-consumer plastic in the housing. "That's about the equivalent of three plastic water bottles,” Curtis Campbell, the OptiPlex's product manager, told earth2tech.com. The line of green PCs is aimed mostly at institutional buyers, according to the Web site. It will be interesting to see which plastic wins the hearts and minds of environmentally minded office product buyers -- recycled content like Dell is using, or biopolymers like Canon Inc.
