Green Your Movie-Watching: At-Home Theater Efficiency

Green TV During those two-hour summer blockbusters, it’s easy to suspend your eco-habits along with disbelief. This week's tips offer ways to get a greener grip on movie-watching.

Tip #3: Choose Low-Energy Electronics

If you prefer to keep the gas-guzzler parked and enjoy movies at home, consider investing in energy-efficient entertainment electronics. According to GE's interactive online tool, a standard flat-screen TV and DVD player uses 230 watts to operate and consumes 27 gallons of gas per year. Many manufacturers now make LED-lit TVs, and electronics stores are packed with Energy Star DVD and Blu-ray players.

Tell us: What low-energy electronics do you recommend?
