In a time when taking care of my planet and saving money are at the top of our nation’s priorities, I do my part by reducing my energy consumption. By practicing power-saving strategies, I lower my utility bill. I also reduce damage to the planet.
In my home, I keep the lights off as much as I can. Opting for natural light helps me feel more relaxed. The light is less bright in my eyes and it also conserves energy.
To prevent electricity from flowing through unused appliances, I unplug them when I am done using them. It is easy for me to remember to turn off the lights and unplug household devices when not in use.
It only takes a few seconds to make a big impact on my utility bill and the environment.
I gladly do what is needed to turn off a light switch, even if that means I have to get up from where I am sitting.
When I relax, I choose to unwind with an interesting book, rather than waste endless hours in front of the television. I turn my television on only when I want to watch a particular program.
I refrain from leaving my television on as background noise in my home because it consumes energy when it is on. This is one of the easiest ways to conserve energy, and I am glad to do it.
Today, I choose to take a walk around my home to see where I can improve my lifestyle. I relish new opportunities to lower my energy consumption and make my world a better place.
