green plug

Green Plug is the first developer of digital technology that enables real-time collaboration between electronic devices and their power sources. The company develops and markets embeddable power supply technology to consumer electronics (CE) and power supply companies. Billions of devices including laptops, printers, speakers, routers, modems, cell phones, entertainment devices, power tools, cameras and so many other portable electronic devices require a power source that converts between 90V and 254V wall power to device-specific DC power. That means that these devices require unique power converters, and that is very costly, is extremely inconvenient and contributes to wasted resources and pollution.

With Green Plug, however, intelligent power supplies communicate with electronic devices and agree upon device power requirements for all devices connected to them. All cables and connectors are uniform; so, they work with any device! Being intelligent power sources, they eliminate wasted “phantom power” (power that is wasted when chargers are plugged in and either connected to devices that are fully charged or have no devices connected to them) and improve power utilization and efficiency.


save energy

The Ecostrip looks just like a regular power strip. And for the most part that’s what it is. But connect this $35 strip to your PC via a USB cable and when you shut down your computer, the EcoStrip will turn off any other devices that are plugged in. Perfect for anyone who’s always forgetting to turn off the printer, speakers, lamp, and microwave oven.

The main advantage of the Ecostrip is that it eliminates the flow of electricity to computer peripherals when the computer is turned off, thereby drastically reducing electricity bills in the home and workplace. With no programming or extra installation requirements, the Ecostrip operates like a normal surge protector/power strip until the computer sends a signal telling the peripherals they are no longer in use.

According to the Energy Star web site, “40% of all electrical usage is wasted through devices that continue to consume power even while switched off.” The Ecostrip eliminates this problem simply and effectively.

The Ecostrip has enjoyed quite a high level of success in Asia and especially around Europe, where it arrived back in 2005. Why? Well, simply because the Ecostrip is its own best advertisement. This is one of those ‘once in a generation’ products that actually sells itself.

  • It’s easy to use and simple to set-up! Just plug it in.
  • It’s effective! Can save you more than $70 a year.
  • It’s affordable! Under $30.00.

The USB Ecostrip is the easiest way to “green” your computer and start conserving energy today!

a little lighting can change the mood

It can if you’re putting light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs into your lamps. Better known as the bulbs behind your laptop screen and Lite-Brite (aww…), LEDs are brighter and cheaper than ever – and just to arouse your interest even more: They’re way more efficient than even compact fluorescents (CFLs).

There are several benefits to making the switch:

* Increased flow to your wallet. Although LEDs are currently a lot more expensive out of the gate, replacing an incandescent bulb with one can save you more than $700 over its lifetime.
* Having a planet-gasm. LEDs use less energy than incandescents (about 1/10th) and CFLs (about half), since they produce comparatively little heat – all the energy is used for light.
* Lasting longer. LEDs last about 60,000 hours, compared to 10,000 for CFLs, and 1,500 for old-school incandescents (making LEDs especially great for ceilings, since you almost never gotta change ’em).
* Merc-free turn-ons. Even if the mercury CFLs contain is minimal, LEDs are even better, with none at all.
