Need a simple way to keep a check on the energy wasted when you leave your computer for lunch, meeting or answering a phone call? Yes, the Eco Button helps you with that. It is a device that drastically reduces the power consumption when you are not using the computer resulting in a lesser amount of your carbon footprint. It plugs in via USB and what you need to do is just push the button whenever the computer is left idle and running. The software that comes with it not only keeps a record of energy but even calculates the subsequent cash you saved with the Eco Button.
Since it is not possible every other time to shut down the computer, the Eco Button paves the way to at least reduce the waste of energy (and money). For more information visit eco-button.com.
