One green team member recently made a green purchase worth sharing. The smart strip, which despite saying "as seen on TV," usually a deterrent to us green team members, is just that. Smart. If you plug in your television and all the extras like your DVD player and video games and stereo into the strip, as long as the TV is turned off, the other machines automatically turn off and there is no power being sent to them. It's as if you unplugged. You save money on your electric bill and no phantom power!
