Youve got the power! Little things can make a BIG difference.
Turn off lights. Use energy saving bulbs. Switch off computers and TVs. Put on a jumper instead of the heater. Short showers use less water and energy than a bath. Make sure fridge and freezer doors are closed and sealed properly. Let food cool down before it goes in the fridge. Make a difference – at home.
Check the Star energy rating before you buy – the more stars the better. Recycle bottles, cans, paper and plastics. Wash your clothes in cold water. Fix drips and leaky taps. Turn the tap off while you clean your teeth. Make a difference – at home. Skip the dryer – hang washing on the clothes line. Grow green – plant and protect trees.
Make a difference – on the move.
