One Small Act Can Make a World of Difference

Recently, Hewlett-Packard (HP) urged PC users around the world to help save energy. Did you know that the simple act of turning off your computer can help reduce energy waste, curb carbon emissions and even save money? It may be a small change, but it can make a big difference – especially when a global community of people do it together.

The simple act of shutting down your computer when you are done for the day can make a world of difference. If we all commit to this one small change, we can reduce energy waste and curb carbon emissions. Join HP’s Power To Change (PTC) campaign and take an important step toward making the world a greener place today.

If 100,000 users shut down their work computers at the end of each day, energy savings could total more than 2,680 kilowatt-hours (kWh) and carbon emissions reductions could total more than 1,600 kilograms (kg) per day. This is the equivalent of eliminating more than 105 cars from the road each day.

Small changes can make a world of difference.

Be part of a global movement and engage in a community of like-minded individuals all making this change for the better. Download the Power To Change widget which reminds you to turn off your computer and keeps track of your energy savings. Here, you can also see the impact that you and the rest of the world are making on the environment.

Start today. Turn off your computer when you are done for the day and help spread the word.

Now what should I do about my pending torrents collection (another PTC)? I have to admit it saves me a lot of money. Now my heart is torn between two PTCs.
