The green scene at CES 2010

I might not have attended the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas — I should!! — but there are plenty of media outlets to get information about the latest green gadgetry coming soon and w/ hopefully lesser price tags.

CES even had a separate show floor called Sustainable Planet Spotlight that highlights the latest technologies including advances in green building, alternative energy technologies and smart grid technologies. Included in the Spotlight is the Greener Gadgets Display, which features the pioneering technologies from the annual Greener Gadgets Design Competition.

Websites such as and featured some of these latest green gadgetries. I stole some of the pictures from CNET to show it here ; ).

Also in time for the show, Greenpeace released its annual Guide to Greener Electronics, with Apple, Sony Ericsson and Nokia getting their green thumbs up for their products free of “bad chemicals.”

At the CES show, Greenpeace also awarded Hewlett-Packard (HP) for their new 8000f Elite Ultra Slim Desktop PC, said to be the first Windows based PC to be free of brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

Samsung, Dell, Lenovo and LGE got booed by Greenpeace for reportedly failing to follow through on a promised phase-out of toxics in their products.
