Recycling, reusing and reducing are the three biggest steps Britons across the UK are trying to implement to conserve their energy usage.
There has been a big shift in consumer trends and now the concept of being environmentally friendly is a big aspect of many homeowners and businesses. The notion of having a positive impact on the world and being ‘green’ is becoming more and more popular and as a result, there has been an emphasis placed on people striving to reduce their carbon footprint.
In such a tech-savvy society, it would make sense to hear that touch screen technology can help. It has been claimed that the self-service sector is lagging behind in going conservational but not only can the equipment improve its material credentials to be ecological, it can also benefit with recycling features.
So how can kiosks help the sustainable industry?
There are numerous kiosks that have been manufactured to offer information and guidance on helping the environment. These machines offer advice to consumers on how they can cut their energy usage, therefore educating them with tips and knowledge.
E.g. there are some touch screen monitors deployed at Manchester Airport by the train station to inform travellers on how they can be more sustainable.
Some kiosks are installed with technology that enables the user to manage the unit’s power and energy consumption. There are also some interfaces and touch screens that are solar-powered; click here for more information on solar powered kiosks.
Kiosks can also offer conservational features like recycling. There are units which can recycle old mobile phones such as the ones by American firm ecoATM. Without assistance from a human, the kiosks evaluate mobile phones to problems like chipped covers and cracked screens and they offer a price. Cash is given instantly and the phones can are recycled or resold.
But it isn’t juts mobile phones that can be recycled. Check out one of our previous posts on how Pepsi deployed touch screen technology to encourage customers to recycle their cans and plastic bottles after use.
