green

Energy efficient. Environmentally friendly. The term is applied to systems and products that save energy directly or indirectly. For example, capturing rainwater saves the energy required to pump the water from a well and also lessens flooding and other runoff problems.

Products that are built with recycled materials or are more compact, more energy efficient and less wasteful of materials in general than their previous models are often labeled green. The green concept includes using less packaging materials, recycling toner cartridges and providing a return location for used batteries. Switching from paper manuals to electronic manuals is also green. See .green, green PC, green datacenter and green building.
