Today is Earth Day in 192 countries. What better time to learn how you can recycle computers and other devices more safely and where you can recycle hardware, packaging, and batteries.

The Environmental Protection Agency reports that recycling 1 million laptops saves enough energy to power more than 3,500 US homes for a year.

You can celebrate nature on a new device by adding a Windows theme that features student photos submitted to Bing to help educate the world about Earth Day. Download the Bing Earth Day student photo contest theme.
