Manufacturer's Description

The environmental impact of PCs left running idle in the UK Computers and monitors can account for half of the electricity used in a typical office. A single monitor left switched on overnight can use the same energy as a laser printer producing 800 A4 printed copies, – and dont be fooled by a screensaver the computer is still working at full power to run this! There are some 10m office PCs in Britain and approximately 20m home PCs, of this 1.8m are regularly left on overnight or all weekend, according to a recent study on energy wastage. Based on this study, around 1.5 billion kWh of energy is wasted by computers and monitors being left on. That is approximately £115million wasted in the UK every year! Convert this into carbon and we waste around 700,000 tonnes of carbon due to workers not switching off computers and monitors in the UK.All this office computer waste can be easily avoided by adopting simple energy saving policies which are supported by energy saving devices like ecobutton.Based on the study figures, nationally, with one small click, 700,000 tonnes of office PC wasted carbon could be avoided. The Government is urging everybody to take steps to become carbon neutral The ecobutton proactively encourages eco awareness and a satisfaction that collectively, every small click actually adds up to make a BIG difference. This is emphasized by the provision of an on-screen meter that shows exactly what has been saved in both power cost and carbon footprint. It demonstrates that individually and collectively as a business, you are taking responsibility to reduce your carbon footprint and to cut electricity bills by making more efficient use of resources.
