Computer and Monitor Computers indirectly create nearly 500 pounds of CO2 per year. Turning them off when not in use will save 43 pounds.
Do not use a screen saver when your computer monitor is active. Instead, let it switch to sleep mode or turn the monitor off.
Printer, Fax, Copier Save energy and space with a multi-function device that combines several capabilities—such as print, fax, copy, and scan. Enable power management features for additional savings. Turn off machines when not in use.
Set office equipment to automatically switch to sleep mode. This will help equipment to save energy, to run cooler, and to last longer.
When purchasing new home office products, look for the ENERGY STAR® label to save energy.
Power Strip Use a power strip as a central "turn off" point when you are finished using equipment. This will help eliminate the standby power consumption used by office equipment even when it is turned off.
