Clothes Dryers May Use 35% More Energy Than Advertised

November 6, 2012

We've all been there. You take a load of clothes out of the dryer only to find that the pair of jeans you want to throw on aren't completely dry.

CE Recycling Awareness On the Rise
October 24, 2012 From News
My neighborhood discussion group often posts emails about CE products they want to sell, give away or recycle. The entire community seems duly concerned about not adding to the waste stream. One neighbor would not upgrade to a flat panel television (TV) until she could find a home for her 10-year-old analog set. “It's easy-to-use, has a large screen and free,” she said.
No problem; the TV, converter box and antenna were all snatched up in minutes. So I wasn’t surprised when CEA’s CE Recycling and Reuse 2012 Edition study found that nine in ten consumers believe it’s important to recycle their CE devices.
