Manage Power Expenditures
Electronics consume a large amount of power even when turned off. This "vampire load" can account for up to 40 percent of the total power used in a facility. To save energy, unplug the device, or use power strips that detect if it is powered on or off. If a device must remain on, choose power settings that allow the device to hibernate.
Extend the life of your Computer
To extend a computer's life span, optimize system performance by routinely running anti-virus programs, defrag software, registry cleaners and other software utilities (many of which are free).
Repair, Reuse, then Recycle
Sometimes a small repair is all that is needed to bring older electronics back to life. With some of the best warranties in the industry, Panasonic products are easy to maintain.
Donate Used Equipment
Instead of disposing of electronic devices, consider donating them to a local school or organization. For items that are no longer usable, consider Panasonic's recycling services.
If you want to be the greenest of the green, if the situation permits, consider turning all the room lights off when using a projector. Lights-off projecting offers two benefits. First, fewer projector lumens are required to create a big and bright image in a completely dark room. Second, you're using absolutely no energy to light up the room.
Why Digital Cameras Are Eco-conscious
While it may not be the camera that contributed to the degradation of the ecosystem, it's the film processing that had a lot to do with it. As films are being processed, chemicals such as the developer and fixer solutions are used to process the film and after that, they need to be disposed. But even though they may be discarded in the most proper way, they can still harm the environment in more ways than one.
