This is Day 24 of the Green in 365 series!
If you are like the average American family, a lot of your time spent in your living room centers around using electronics; watching TV or videos, listening to music, playing video games. And you know that your electronic equipment is almost obsolete by the time you bring it home from the store and get it out of the box, the technology is changing so fast these days.
So, sometime within the next year you may be in the market for some new electronic equipment for your home, and besides making sure your electronics are plugged into a power strip and turned off at night, you can also make sure your electronics are more environmentally friendly by choosing to buy Energy Star products.
Energy Star certified televisions are over 20% more energy efficient, with larger TVs being even more efficient, and Energy Star audio/video equipment is up to 60% more energy efficient than conventional models. Choosing Energy Star electronics will save you money on your energy bills while also helping to protect the planet by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. (source)
