Last month PC Magazine had a Green Issue that featured all things green in the technology world. So in the spirit of Earth Day this website is going green for the week.
To start things off I’d like to point you to PC Magazine’s Green Coverage. Here you will learn about:
- how they rate green technology: they look at energy efficiency, recyclability, certifications, and performance
- 48 clean-tech tips and facts: here’s one- “As much as 40 percent of the energy used by electronics in a home is consumed when devices are switched off.”
- seven power saving tips: like turn off that screen saver– it’s just a waste
- America’s e-waste: did you know our old computers could make a 22-story heap that would cover Los Angeles?
Kudos to PC Magazine for its Green Coverage. They’ve put together some great resources that I think are perfect for consumers and work well in the classroom too.
For example, I put their 48 green facts into a slideshow for students to watch as they shuffle into class on Earth Day. Below is the slideshow or you can download the PowerPoint version to use in your own class.
Happy Earth Day!
