Holiday Saving Tips from Energy Star 

Holiday Decorating
Be sure to also look for the Energy Star label on LED decorative light strings to meet your holiday decorating needs.  Qualified light strings use 75 percent less electricity than conventional incandescent light strings and are available in a variety of colors, shapes, and lengths.  These Energy Star qualified light strings save energy and are more durable, shock-resistant and cooler to the touch.
 
Recycle Old Electronics
Don’t forget to tell those who are receiving your gifts to recycle their old electronics.  Recycling electronics allows the valuable materials in electronics to be used again in new products, saving natural resources. EPA’s Plug-In To eCycling initiative has information on how to safely recycle electronics, including cell phones, computers, and TVs.
 
Unplug Electronics
With all of these holiday ideas, remember that unplugging electronics once they are charged as well as turning them off when they are not in use will optimize the energy savings.  Plugging electronics into a power strip makes this easy — just flip the switch to power everything down at once.
