Exactly, it could be like an Energy Star program.. but with technological ramifications. In addition to the potential for recycling parts that is a HUGE unknown industry according to what I have heard.

Tax rebates normally go for companies, but that might be a good idea. If you buy from a "green company" (with some sort of certification), you would get a tax break. The companies that want to increase sales, might be pushed to green technologies.

Yes that can be done. I will try to find it and post it here but IMO its not that practical.

OK. In general, a tip:

If you get the link for a not so well known site or company, link to it directly so the rest of us can click and find the reference material easily.

I would go for Easy Green and Digital Door Locks if I was given the choice but will focus more on Easy Green though becasue it is the important factor right now for any industry.

Yes. Especially if consumers are provided with incentives to go green (tax rebates, prizes, etc)

I agree that creating awareness adds pressure to big companies to "go green" or else, consumers will start shifting...

I do. I agree that there is still work to be done. But awareness is the key. If the majority of the population is in the dark on a topic, there will be little headway in the initiative.
