RCA Trims Energy Use Of Products
Thomson Audio/Video has tripled the number of Energy Star qualified RCA Audio/Video products and plans to increase the energy efficiency of more products. RCA Bookshelf Audio Systems, DVD players, and Home Theater Audio Systems now consume less than one-watt of power in standby mode, qualifying them for the Energy Star mark.
Thomson says it will also save more than 450 tons of plastic in the next two years by making smaller, environmentally-friendly paper gift box containers that will replace the plastic packages. This Smart Packing RCA Audio/Video initiative has already saved over 81 tons of plastic, according to Thompson.
