A Beautiful & Successful My Green IT Day

On April 27, 2011 Nitro IT Business Solutions partnered with TechnoPlanet, Tripp Lite, and Andash Property Management to bring My Green IT Day to Ottawa. Simple ideas that benefit everyone – and helps the environment. was created to help IT businesses give back to the environment by partnering with industry leading technology companies who specialize in environmentally-friendly disposal, repair and repurposing of obsolete and non-functioning technology equipment. It is their belief that if every business held one 'Green IT Day' per year, it would help keep landfills and our drinking water safe from pollutants used in the manufacture of older computers, printers, faxes, networking components, peripherals, etc.

Tons of technology equipment waste continues to fill up our landfills and pollute our environment every day. This Nitro-specific My Green IT Day movement encouraged people to do something simple to reduce the impact of IT waste on the environment––it was a great success! A very special thank you to our sponsors and to all that participated––we could not have done it with out you!
