Turn Off Goes Green...

A Joint Project of Earth Day Network and Center for SCREEN-TIME Awareness

Did you know that the average television consumes 200-300 kilowatt-hours per year, accounting for an estimated 3-4% of the annual electronic usage in the USA.

That’s a whopping 46.9 billion kilowatt-hours a year! Or, in environmental terms, approximately 36 million tons of carbon dioxide, a global-warming causing pollutant.

Next week on April 22nd is Earth Day - do you part and turn off your TV!
