This article reports on the effort of the U.S. Army and Air Force Exchange Service in promoting the energy- and climate-saving Energy Star products to help military shoppers save money while protecting the environment. The Energy Star label is a joint program of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy that was introduced in 1992 to recognize energy-efficient computers. Since then, the label has expanded to include efficient products in more than 35 product categories.
