This Earth Day, Best Buy and LG Electronics USA have joined forces to help the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launch its “Flip Your Fridge” ENERGY STAR® campaign on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, encouraging consumers to responsibly recycle their aging fridges and upgrade to new, energy-efficient models.
