How does ENERGY STAR® help the environment?

Did you know that your house can pollute twice as much as your car? That's right, twice as much. That's because every time we flick on a light switch, run a dishwasher, or turn on a TV, we're using energy.

Most energy comes from power plants that burn fossil fuels, which, when burned, release greenhouse gases into the air. So, it's simple! The more energy we save by using ENERGY STAR products and adopting energy-saving practices in our homes, the more air pollution we can prevent.
