The Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2010) concludes today in Las Vegas, Nevada. The four day show allows electronic companies to demonstrate new products and draw media attention, even though the show is not open to the public. The CES is produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the preeminent trade association promoting growth in the consumer technology industry.
According to the Consumer Electronics Association the first CES took place in New York City in 1967. In recent years, more than 5,000 news stories have generated from the CES. It's no surprise that as more individuals and businesses commit to lessoning their carbon footprints, many of those stories might highlight the green aspects of the Consumer Electronics Show.
