7GA Personal Climate Action Center Action of the Week!

There is so much work to do to heal our planet that it can feel overwhelming to determine where to start. That’s why 7GA launched our
Personal Climate Action Center:
Action of the Week

Each week we provide one action item for YOU to reduce your carbon emissions. We also share the amount of emissions that you save by taking the action, and we track your overall reductions for you.

Week 7: Action of the Week
Purchase a Laptop Versus a Desktop.
(Next time your computer putters out!)

The holidays are in full swing and due to the current circumstances online shopping is more popular than ever. If you are in the market for a new computer this holiday season, consider purchasing a laptop versus a desktop.

There are a lot of debates about which is better, but from an environmental perspective the laptop wins because they use less energy and far less material in manufacturing. According to, a desktop that is on for 8 hours a day emits 385 lbs of CO2 per year. A laptop that is on for 8 hours a day emits about 194 lbs of CO2 per year. That’s a difference of 191 lbs of CO2 per year, or like saving 10 gallons of gas!

So during those post holiday sales, consider the planet when making your decision. To make your shopping easier, check out this piece about the 5 best laptops on the market. And like we mentioned last week, be sure to unplug when your computer is not in use to save even more energy.
