TVs Are About to Get Greener
A new wave of ecologically friendly electronics products is set to hit the market this spring, as customers flock to products that both save energy and are easily recyclable.
According to the Los Angeles Times, 40 percent of responds to a Forrester Research survey said they would “consider environmental factors” in their next electronics purchase, while a similar amount said they would pay 10 percent more for a more energy-efficient product.
This has led to a lineup of products coming to stores in the coming months, including the 42-inch Eco TV from Philips, which advertises its green pedigree right in its name. The LCD TV, which will arrive this spring at a price tag of $1,400, works through an ambient light sensor.
