Are we green yet?

Monk and his I.T. Junk Energy Efficiency
I have been feeling quite green recently – and not in a ‘cannot get out bed with man flu kind of way’. No, instead I have been thinking about how I can be that little bit more energy efficient so that has been my focus over the last week. Switching off devices if there are not actually needed, not printing out everything and anything that catches my eye, and safely recycling unused equipment instead of throwing it in the trash.

For the gadget lovers out there I recently wrote about the USB Ecobutton. And if you are wondering what can be done to help with being a little more energy efficient try the new Green IT Poster.
