Power Down for a Great Cause

In Events, IT news on August 24, 2010 at 4:28 pm

We hear it every day – Go Green; reduce, reuse, recycle. We carry reusable grocery bags to reduce plastic bag waste. We recycle glass, paper, and plastic to use re-purpose in new products. We buy organic materials to minimize our carbon foot prints. But when is the last time you thought to turn off your computer?

This week we have an opportunity to do just that.

This Friday, August 27 is the third annual Power IT Down Day, an effort to save energy and encourage healthy energy habits. By powering down our computers for just one (work) day, we can take care of our planet and at the same time, donate to a great cause.

Last year, Power IT Down sponsors donated the savings to charity to the tune of $45,000. This year the savings will benefit Wounded Warrior Project.

Think about it – leaving your work computer and other peripherals on all weekend uses a lot of unnecessary energy. Turning them off for 60+ hours can help save tens of thousands of kilowatt hours. Do your part and help a great cause.

Sign up to power down.
