        Eco Electronics

        Engineer Erin Gately talks about the environmental aspects of her job with the printer manufacturer Hewlett-Packard, in this video adapted from DESIGN SQUAD. Erin takes apart old printers and recycles nearly all of the parts so that they can be used in new products. She and a work colleague explain how they are designing two new environmentally friendly printers, using recycled plastic and biodegradable material produced from corn instead of plastic.

        This media asset is from Design Squad: "Eco Electronics."
