A Joint Project of Earth Day Network and Center for SCREEN-TIME Awareness
Did you know that the average television consumes 200-300 kilowatt-hours per year, accounting for an estimated 3-4% of
the annual electronic usage in the USA.
That's a whopping 46.9 billion kilowatt-hours a year! Or, in environmental terms, approximately 36 million tons of carbon
dioxide, a global-warming causing pollutant.
