Save The Planet, Stop Watching DVDs. Yes, They’re Serious.

Could ditching DVDs save the planet? Billions of kg of CO2 could be saved by scrapping the discs, researchers claim | Mail Online.

Now, a new study has shown that can be much better for the environment, requiring less energy and emitting less carbon dioxide () than some traditional methods of renting, buying and viewing.

They estimated that if all DVD viewing in the US was shifted to streaming services in 2011, around 2 billion kg of CO2 could have been avoided and around 30 petajoules (PJ) of energy saved.

That’s the equivalent of the amount of electricity needed to meet the demands of 200,000 US households.
