  1. This is interesting but what I would really like to know is which tablet/reader has the best environmental performance including cradle to grave manufacturing and adherence to fair trade. Does anyone know more about this?

  2. Great review of tablet eco friendly tablet readers. I am actually kind of surprised not see a review of A Lot to Say’s iPad case, which are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. GreenSmart also makes iPad cases out of recycled plastic.
