Energy Saving Tips for Everyday Things

by Tori Riggs

Here are some simple tips for saving energy in any everyday situation:

  1. Use recharble batteries. This will help you save energy and money: rechagable batteries last twice as long and disposibles and you won't need to by as many batteries this way.

  2. Use a glass or mug rather than a paper or plastic disposable cup. This will help the environment with less paper and plastic pollution.

  3. Only print what you really need to. Copy and paste information from websites to word documents and delete anything you don't need, and your trash won't pile up as fast.

  4. Take your lunch to work in a reuseable container to avoid throwing too much away. Also, buy a regular lunch box or carrier to avoid wasting too much money on paper bag.

  5. Turn off the lights when you leave a room, even if you will be right back. Even saving a little energy helps and sometimes you might forget and waste more energy than you think.
