Our first recommendation is carpool and use buses more instead of always using separate cars. This will save: Gasoline Money Energy It helps reduce traffic A challenge to do this would be people getting late to their jobs and classes, or anyplace they’re going to pick up other people. Also, people might have trouble contacting each other to find how they are going to get together.
Our second recommendation is for everyone to turn off the lights when they aren’t using them. This will save: Energy Money A challenge is to remember to turn off unused lights. Also, this could be hard because people may have to leave their lights on for other conveniences.
Our last recommendation was to wash clothes in cold or slightly warm water not hot water. Hot water uses more energy, and makes your water and electricity bill cost more.
