Reduce, Reuse & Recycle
Here are a few suggestions on what you can do to help improve the environment and reduce your carbon footprint!
Turn it off - Turn off lights, televisions, videos, stereos and computers when not in use - they can use 10 to 40% of the power when on standby. Also, unplug chargers as soon as they have finished charging.
Be exact - Fill the kettle with only as much water as you need.
Close it - Don't leave fridge doors open for longer than necessary.
Check your tires - Properly inflated tires can improve your car’s fuel efficiency.
Use no plastic - Use cloth bags when going shopping and avoid buying products which use too much plastic.
Fan up - Instead of using air conditioners in the summer, wear cool clothes, and use a fan.
Drive less - Do your weekly errands in a single trip or pay your bills online. Walk, bike, ride the bus or carpool.
Optimize your speed - You will consume up to 25% less fuel if you drive no more than 55 mph.
Drive hybrid - A hybrid or other fuel-efficient car emits less carbon dioxide.
Replace them - Replace your incandescent bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL). CFLs cost 3 to 5 times as much but use less than a third of the power. Also, replace old fridge and other appliances with energy-efficient ones.
Watch what you eat - Choose food produced close to your home. It’s fresher and requires less transportation.
Recycle - Consume less, and re-use old products.
