Recognize Earth Day Every Day: Live Green, Buy Green, Recycle Responsibly

By: Samantha Nevels 15 April 2013

We’re one week away from Earth Day, April 22, and CEA wants to reward you for showing us how you Live Green, Buy Green and Recycle Responsibly. Send us a picture of you being green, and you could win a 39-inch LED Samsung TV and a Nest home energy system!

Between today and April 26, take a picture of yourself being green or of your green gadget and post to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #CEAGreen to enter to win. Not sure what to do to be green? CEA’s GreenerGadgets.org has ideas and tools you can use to learn about your energy usage.

Live Green: The Consumer Electronics Energy Calculator estimates the amount of energy your electronics are using in your home based on the products you own and the amount of time they are used each day.

Buy Green: Buy and use ENERGY STAR certified electronics. These products provide the same functionality as their competitors but use less energy because they are more efficient in all usage modes: sleep, idle, and on. Also, look for EPEAT-certified products. Beyond energy consumption, EPEAT is another certification that looks at even more environmental aspects of products.

Recycle Responsibly: Use CEA’s electronics recycling locator tool to find responsible recycling locations in your neighborhood. Our electronics recycling locator tool lists only third-party, certified recyclers, so rest assured your device will be safely recycled.

How will you join us in celebrating Earth Day?
