Fossil fuels are not renewable! So, don’t waste them!
Ask an adult to change the lights in your home!

If every home in America replaced the 9 most frequently used incandescent light bulbs with ones that have earned the ENERGY STAR, we would save close to $9 billion.
60 seconds x 60 minutes x 24 hours x 365 days = 31,536,000 seconds in a year. 9,000,000,000 / 31,536,000 = 285.4
60 seconds x 60 minutes x 24 hours x 365 days = 31,536,000 seconds in a year. 9,000,000,000 / 31,536,000 = So, if I had $9 billion, I could give you $1 every second for over 285 years!
A 5 minute shower with a low- flow shower head uses: 7 ½ gallons of water!
A bathtub uses:
A bathtub uses: 24?
Some bathtubs use: Up to 40 gallons of water!

1)Turn lights off when you leave a room. 2)Allow the sun to light a room and leave light switches off. 3)Have an adult change light bulbs to energy efficient ones.
1)Don’t leave the refrigerator door open. 2)Scrape dishes clean instead of rinsing them in the sink before putting them into the dishwasher. And only wash full loads. 3)Use the microwave instead of the stove to heat food and drink. 4)Dry clothes outside whenever possible.

The more you have the warmer your home will stay. 2)Insulation also keeps the heat out in the summer. 3)During the winter months, open curtains to let the sun in to help warm your house. In the summer, close the curtains where the sun is shining in to keep your home cooler.
