Vampire Electronics
New York

Vampire Electronics sunk their teeth into discussing those appliances left plugged into the wall that are still siphoning energy, even when not technically "in use." The team issued over 700 e-mails in an effort to contact senators, governors, local and international officials, as well as the general public with information about the unused energy that amounts to an estimated annual waste of $300 per household in electrical bills. Vampire Electronics petitioned the global community for their cause, and set up a blog that received more than 3,500 page views.
