Acer Green Day 2022
Acer also launched its “21-Day Challenge” on Acer Green Day as part of its Earthion aim to inspire its employees to conduct green acts on a daily basis and make them a habit. Now, this challenge is not just for customers, but also for the people who work for Acer’s partners and suppliers.
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
The Acer Chromebook Vero 514 (CBV514-1H/T) is easy to update, repair, disassemble, and recycle. It uses 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic in the chassis and 50% in the keycaps, 100% ocean-bound plastic for the touchpad surface, and 90% recycled paper packaging. The fan housing inside the Chromebook and the OceanGlass touchpad, which feels smooth and responsive like glass, are both made from plastics that come from the ocean.
The new Chromebook has a longer lifespan to reduce environmental effects. Standard screws on the bottom cover simplify memory and storage upgrades. The paint-free chassis has a cobblestone grey finish and a 99% recyclable display panel. The Acer Chromebook Vero 514’s MIL-STD 810H impact-resistant shell protects it from drops as high as 122 cm (48 inches).
