Many of us use computers for a large part of our work day.  If you’re reading this, you’re clearly a computer user!  Our green tip for today is just for you…

Green Tip #4

If you have the option, use a laptop computer (or a tablet or smartphone).  Laptops only use 15-20 watts, whereas desktop computers with monitors use about 150 watts.  Considering the number of hours we all use computers each week, this savings really adds up for your wallet and the planet.  This is also a good tip to remember when you’re shopping for a new computer.  Go small, and go green!
