PR representatives will often approach me about an environmental initiative some huge company is starting, and generally, those emails will wind up in my trash folder. But every once in a while, there’s an initiative that hits home. HP’s Power to Change challenge is one of those exceptions. So why does it resonate with me so much? Well, because it doesn’t require any money, it’s a simple change, it really can help us save energy (and money) as it claims, and it’s something I need a reminder to do myself. That’s why, as much as I appreciate HP for providing my ENERGY STAR rated DV2 laptop for BlogHer, I am only sharing this campaign because it is something I can honestly get behind.
One of the things I’ve been looking to focus on more here at Green Your Decor is technology. Gone are the days when interior designers could create a room completely devoid of TVs or computers of any kind. They are an integral part of our lives and often, an integral part of our decor. So as Green Your Decor continues, I will present you with some technology options that are both stylish and green, so you don’t feel like you have to hide your computer/TV/gadgets for the sake of a well-designed room.
