Going Green with Your PC

While most PC and electronic manufactures have already taken steps in making their products more green, those of us who are stuck with non-green equipment need not completely throw away our stuff to show our love for the planet. In fact, by disposing of all our non-environmentally safe electronic equipment carelessly, we only contribute to the continuing pollution of the planet.

Thanks to Lifehacker, there are simple ways of going green with regards to your computer without exactly having to purchase a new one. From taking advantage of the Power Scheme tools of Windows/Applications to something as simple as turning off unused peripherals, these tips can make a world of difference in the fight to save Mother Earth.

Come to think of it, there’s really no excuse for us not to be able to do our share in the green movement. Ordinary stuff as those suggested above or unplugging fully-charged mobile phones/devices not only save energy, but also saves you from unwanted expenses in this financially-challenging times. Spread the word and let these simple yet effective practices become part of your daily routine.
