Razer just made two of our favorite mice even better

On the back of World Environment Day, Razer announced a nice touch that makes two of our favorite gaming mice even better. The Razer Basilisk V3 and DeathAdder Essential have been officially rated and have achieved UL ECOLOGO certification.

UL ECO-certified (opens in new tab) is an optional third-party test that addresses sustainability based on the lifecycle of products. There are different requirements for all types of products, but essentially having this certification means that high standards of environmental sustainability have been met in the creation of these products.

Razer’s Basilisk V3 and DeathAdder Essential are the first gaming mice to pass the Outline of Investigation for Sustainability for Portable Electronics. This included evaluating other aspects such as packaging, repair and even disposal of waste from the production involved in the manufacture of these mice.

They now bear the ECOLOGO certification mark, which means customers are assured that they were made with environmental sustainability concerns in mind. The logo is recognized and displayed on Amazon’s online store, so we hope to see it appearing on many more products soon.

The two mice were chosen as starting points as they are popular and very affordable mice designed to work for many gamers. Since we classify the DeathAdder V2 (opens in new tab) While the best gaming mouse (opens in new tab)for most gamers, this is certainly worth it. O Razer Basilisk V3 (opens in new tab) won our best RGB award, so you can show your gamer pride and still show your environmental responsibility.

This is all part of Razer 10-year Go Green Plan (opens in new tab) work towards more environmentally sustainable processes. This includes initiatives such as responsibly creating new products to invest in other green companies and sometimes even making beautiful snake sneakers. (opens in new tab)

We expect to continue to see a greater push towards environmental sustainability in even more of our PC gaming products. Given that Razer has partnered with UL to promote environmental labeling of gaming products in the past, we imagine these mice are just the first to get the label. I hope we don’t have to wait for the next World Environment Day to hear more.
