Tips for Kids
- Turn off the lights whenever you leave your bedroom, bathroom, or any other room!
- Turn off your radio, t.v., computer, and video games when you are done using them!
- Take short showers! They use less hot water, and water in general, than a bath.
- Check for problems like dripping faucets. It takes energy to heat water!
- Decide what you want from the refrigerator before opening the door and then close the door quickly afterwards!
- If you are cold in the house, donít ask your mom or dad to turn up the thermostat; instead, try wearing a sweater or sweatshirt, socks and/or house slippers, and flannel pants!
