Eco-friendly CES

The Consumer Electronics Show has kicked off today in Las Vegas. It's one of the biggest trade-shows in the world and a major trend-setter in the electronics world. Plus, organizers say it's the greenest trade-show in the world.


CES has a list of its environmentally-friendly features, which include green products and new alternative energy technologies.

They also took batteries and light bulbs from landfills.
