1. Plug your gear (laptops, battery chargers, monitors, etc) into a power strip. When not in use, turn the power switch off.
I wonder if this would benefit much to the environment in case of laptops. If you plug it out every day, your battery will be used overnight and will eventually have to be recharged in the morning. That makes a greater usage of battery and will have to be replaced more often. Who knows if saving maybe 40 Whrs overnight is worth buying more batteries, which have terrible impact on the environment.
2. Replace your desktop monitor with an LED backlit screen.
do this only if you are going to buy a new screen. Always remember the life cycle that's going to follow after you dump your old monitor!
4. Recycle old equipment.
lots of people thing that recycling makes them ultimately green. The fact is, that a lot of times, your old tech is transfered back to china (huge carbon footprint) and manually disassembled by children, etc...
