Electronics manufacturer Philips would like to share some ways to go green with their televisions. One way to be earth-friendly is with some of the high-definition televisions on the market, such as those with LED technology. Not only sleek and stylish, the new LED HDTVs use less power and eliminate the use of mercury in the backlighting, making them the right choice for the eco-conscious TV fan.
The team at Philips also offers these tips on ways consumer can “go green” with their TV experience:
1. Turn on the power-saver mode to cut down on power consumption.
2. Control room lighting by dimming the lights. And consider blackout shades
that not only set the TV mood, but offer thermal benefits like keeping heat in during the winter.
3. Watch TV together, and shut off televisions not in use.
4. Don’t forget to properly recycle your old model by donating, repurposing or
recycling your old TV. Explore www.recycle.philips.com or other associations such Earth 911 for recycle options.
In addition, until now the cost of LED made going green a little harder. Today, you and your readers can find eco-friendly LEDs at many price points and feature set by looking for deals on name brand models from electronic stores to warehouse clubs to online retailers. For example Philips has a range of LED TVs available at Costco nationwide from $599.99 to $1,199.99.
