    Opting to buy green electronics can save you a great deal of money on your monthly electric bill. While lowering your monthly expenses is nothing to pout about, there is a much greater benefit about using green electronics, you can save the world! By using eco friendly electronics you lower your overall energy use, which in turn lowers the overall yearly greenhouse gas emission.

    According to ENERGY STAR, “The average home has two TVs, three telephones, and a DVD player. If these items were replaced with ENERGY STAR qualified models, it would save over 25 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to that of more than 2 million cars.” Can you afford to change out even a few of these household items for ones that are branded with an Energy Star sticker?
