Hewlett-Packard recently launched a new environmental awareness campaign. It’s called ‘Power To Change’ and it encourages PC users around the world to turn off their computers at the end of the day or when they’re not in use. This one simple change can make a huge impact on the environment.
If 100,000 users to shut down their computers regularly, it can save over 2,680 kilowatt-hours(1) of energy and reduce carbon emission by more than 3,500 pounds a day.(2) That’s the same as eliminating over 105 cars from the road daily.
Please help do your part. To date, over 14,000 individuals have committed to turning off their computers when they’re not in use. This is an amazing number but, with your help, we can do even better.
