Data centre IT equipment is often used for only a few years and then thrown away. The environmental impact of this is tough to mask! VIPA Digital is part of a CEDaCI working-group which aims to make data centres more sustainable through circular economy, encouraging reduction, recycling, refurbishment and reuse through improved design. This amazing mask has been made with recycled PCBs by Dan Sklan of iNetGroup to highlight this issue.
