Why Buy Refurbished?At ServerMonkey, we save natural resources from being
consumed in new products by refurbishing used servers to give them new life, keeping them out of landlls and toxic
chemicals out of our water, food, and bodies.

Up to 20 million computers end up in U.S. landfills every year.
We buy computers 5 times more often than refrigerators.
It takes almost 5 times more fossil fuel to produce a computer (240 KG) than a refrigerator (50 KG).
The amount of water it takes to produce a computer could wash 70 loads oflaundry.
Over the entire life cycle of a computer and refrigerator, they use almost the same amount of energy.
However, 75% of a computers energy is consumed during the production phase. For a refrigerator, that number is only 4%.
