Making the world a greener place, one PC at a time

Making the world a greener place, one PC at a time

You might think that one person can’t make a difference in the world, but it’s important to know that making even small changes to your everyday habits—like not using any electricity for just one hour—can have a big impact.

One of the easiest ways to cut down on daily energy consumption is literally right at your fingertips: your computer. Chances are, your computer is one of your most-used devices, and if it’s not kept up in an optimal condition, the extra energy it has to expend just to operate everyday programs can add up over time.

Ready to make a difference?

Over the next few weeks, you can join millions of people around the world who are participating in events such as Earth Hour (March 31) and Earth Day (April 22). By getting involved, you can learn how small changes can make a big difference—for both the environment and for your savings.

  • Earth Hour will be celebrated next Saturday, March 31 by over a billion people in more than 135 countries. To participate, simply turn off your lights for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30 pm local time. Doing so not only cuts back on electricity use, it also sends an important message of awareness about the environmental and economic costs of energy consumption.
  • Since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated every April 22. Although Earth Day was started in the United States, since 1990 the Earth Day Network has sought to improve global awareness of the celebration. Today, Earth Day is celebrated in over 190 countries worldwide. Earth Day events range from festivals and recycling drives to “green” car shows: each of these events emphasize the creative ways that people have found to recycle or re-use older items while reducing energy consumption and waste.

Is your computer “green”?

By keeping your machine automatically optimized and maintained around the clock, System Mechanic® makes sure that your computer is always operating at the peak of its energy efficiency.

System Mechanic includes the PC Cleanup™ tool and CRUDD Remover™ to wipe out all the digital clutter and unwanted, redundant programs that could be slowing your PC down and unnecessarily taxing its resources. It also includes the Total Registry Revitalizer™, which clears out all of the registry errors that accumulate through everyday use to prevent freezes, crashes, and other potentially catastrophic glitches. System Mechanic’s Drive Accelerator™—paired with its innovative, patent-pending Program Accelerator™—defragments and re-aligns program files to make sure your PC doesn’t waste any extra energy as it finds and loads your applications.

Last but not least, System Mechanic includes patented ActiveCare® technology—which saves you time, effort, and energy by allowing you to set all of these repairs and optimizations to run automatically.
