A reed switch draws zero power and requires no circuitry in its normally open or off state. A permanent magnet is used to change the state of reed contacts with absolutely no power consumption.
With no wearing parts, load switching under 5 volts at 10mA, the reed switch will reliably operate into the billions of operations for an extended life expectancy.
The reed switch emits zero gases or particles into the air. Its hermetic glass seal both protects it while providing an environmental barrier making it eco-friendly.

Minimal Resources Needed
The reed switch is so small and made with so few components that it requires minimal natural resources and reduces e-waste.
The simple construction of the reed switch makes it very easy to recycle. The reed contacts of are made of metal and the switch seal is made of glass both of which are easily recognizable and recyclable.
Reed switches are popping up in all sorts of green applications such as wind power turbine encoders, solar panel positions, photovoltaic converters, hybrid- and e-cars and e-bikes, etc.
