/top_stories/article/38106The new HP Pavilion dv6929 notebook has ditched the Styrofoam and cardboard boxes that traditionally protect computers in favor of a 100 percent recyclable messenger bag that reduces packaging by 97 percent.

The new HP Pavilion dv6929 notebook has ditched the Styrofoam and cardboard boxes that traditionally protect computers in favor of a 100 percent recyclable messenger bag that reduces packaging by 97 percent.

The computers will still be shipped to stores in a cardboard box that will fit multiple machines. However, consumers who purchase the new notebooks will take home just a messenger bag with the computer and its components, meaning less packaging to dispose of.

The new computers are sold exclusively at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club, which is also offering free electronics recycling when the HP notebook is purchased.

HP is just the latest tech company to incorporate environmental initiatives into manufacturing. There's no word yet on whether HP plans to reduce packaging on all computer models.

No matter what your preference is for computer brands, you can find a place to recycle electronics in your area using Earth911.
