Green Your TV: Energy-Efficient TVs

HDTVs are becoming more popular It's fall and that means new TV shows and nonstop sports action. But while you watch, your carbon footprint continues to grow. This week's tips are about how to green your TV habits.

Tip #1: Buy Energy Star TVs

The greenest choice is to stick with that old black box until its end, but when it's time to switch, opt for Energy Star-labeled TVs. New or used, they save energy in both standby and active modes, consuming about 30 percent less than standard units. If you're in the market for an HDTV, stick to the smaller screens and rear-projection types, which consume less energy than LCDs or plasmas.

Tip #2: Use Power Strips

Tip #3: Recycle It

Tip #4: Watch Less
