Top Eco-Friendly Laptops for Rent

eco friendly laptop

Technology is an integral part of today’s workforce. Whether you are working from home, in-person or hybrid, laptops are essential for completing daily tasks and responsibilities. Since the technology industry isn’t particularly seen as eco-friendly, or sustainable, it can be tough to find a device that fits green-focused needs and values. Read below for the top eco-friendly options for renting a sustainable laptop.

Used Laptops

Choosing to rent a used laptop is a great option for helping to reduce the amount of electronic waste that is dumped into landfills globally each year. According to the UN, 50 million tonnes of electronic waste is produced annually. Manufacturing new laptops cause negative impacts on our environment as the process involves the use of harmful rare materials. In addition, the manufacturing of new devices can also pose harmful health effects to workers as they are at risk of exposure to harmful substances. Overall, choosing to rent a used laptop can help to minimize negative environmental impacts and reduce health risks.

Refurbished Laptops

A refurbished laptop is a used laptop, but it has been inspected, cleaned, upgraded, and repaired by an authorized repair dealer or manufacturer. Although this option is not as eco-friendly as renting a used laptop, it has greater environmental benefits than renting brand new.

Apple MacBook

In 2021, Apple announced its goal is to only use renewable or recycled materials in its devices. Alongside this, they have also begun expanding their repair options as building longer-lasting devices are great for minimizing negative environmental impacts. For instance, Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Air is made with 100% recycled aluminum, 100% recycled tin in the solder of the main logic board, 71% less consumed energy and the use of responsible packaging.

Together, we seek out the synergies where sustainable practices already exist and outline areas for improvement to minimize environmental impacts. Are you interested in going green?

Are your employees returning to the office in person? Or perhaps shifting to a hybrid work model? Laptop rentals play an important role for your business, providing a range of benefits to help make this transition as seamless as possible. With employees working in different locations at various times, a laptop rental can provide benefits including flexibility, portability, and cost-effectiveness.

Laptop Rentals for In-Person Businesses

Renting a laptop for your returning office employees is an excellent option for both parties. Furthermore, it provides room for you to allocate funds in other areas, get ahead of the competition, increase your team’s productivity and the advantage of never having to deal with outdated equipment.

Laptop Rentals for Hybrid Employees

The hybrid work model has become increasingly popular as the world shifts to post-pandemic ways. Furthermore, as hybrid working employees are based both at home and in the office on alternating days, a laptop rental is a great on-the-go device option. Moreover, this will help employees to stay connected from virtually anywhere, whether they are attending an in-person meeting or taking part in remote training.

With a large number of the population working remotely due to impacts of the pandemic, remote work has shown to increase employee productivity, lower operating costs and reduce the use of sick days. COVID-19 has shifted from traditional business office settings to home office environments; however, this has provided flexible working times as well as ensuring the safety of employees.

Forbes Magazine mentions, “Remote work is not going anywhere any time soon.” (2020). “Companies would be wise to prioritize the “remote work revolution” as a strategy to enhance their top objectives in this new decade.” With this in mind, there have been five proven benefits of remote work for companies.

Productivity – Remote workers are an average of 35 – 40 per cent more productive while working from home.

Performance – Remote work and location independence can produce results of 40 per cent in fewer quality defects.

Engagement – An increase in productivity and performance can be combined to create effective engagement, with a 41 per cent decrease in absenteeism.

Retention – 54 per cent of employees said they would switch job roles if another company provided more flexibility.

Profitability – Organizations will have savings of $11,000 per year per part-time remote worker, which is equivalent to a 21 per cent increase in profitability.

Many businesses have suggested they will continue to provide remote working accommodations for their employees, post-pandemic. Vernon can help you keep your business running smoothly by supporting all your rental needs, from installing a mobile office to aiding you with a virtual conference.
