So you want to go green?

Just read an interesting article on the ever brilliant BBC news website. If you're interested in preserving energy and the world, there may be more you can do than just driving a Hybrid. It's very simple (and something I had never really thought about): Switch off your TV, laptop, PC, etc. when you're finished with it. It's shocking to see how much energy is wasted by keeping everything 'on stand-by'.

That does mean that we have to get off our arses to switch off the TV for instance, instead of turning it off by remote control. Still, for some people that may be the only exercise they get all day. And hey, it's all for a good cause.

Anyway, check out the article.
