CES 2008 Going Green

It seems like Green is the main trend at CES 2008.
Even part of their website has become Green, check it out:

The CEA (producer of CES) announced that CES 2008 is taking unprecedented steps to "go green" by reducing its carbon footprint and with the use of sustainable and energy efficient practices.

“As the world’s largest tradeshow for consumer technology, we are also the first tradeshow of our size to reduce our carbon footprint,”
said Gary Shapiro, CEA’s president and CEO.

"CES has really been pushing the "green" theme at this year's show, as has been many exhibitors. HP, for example, says its entire booth is "green", including carpeting made from corn! Even the company's pens are made from 100% recycled material, including a cardboard body, and popsicle stick=like handle. Throughout the show, I've seen everything from solar-powered devices, to "green" power-saving devices, and even bags made from recycled materials."
