There are several recent video games which teach kids to consider natural resource protection and promote planet-saving activities, but what about greening the act of gaming itself? Flip produced a 5 minute clip on several ways to green electronics and gaming habits. Narrated by Katharine Fletcher, one of the bloggers on Flip, who admits that while she is not saying that kids shouldn't game, she wants to incorporate her greenness into one of her favorite hobbies and share these tips with other fellow gamers.
Rechargeable batteries, using a bye-bye standby, and turning off screens while downloading large files are just a few of the tips offered. Fletcher is probably not much older than most gamers, the target audience, so she is easier for kids to listen to.
