INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION
If a child develops good energy efficiency habits at a young age those habits will stick with them for life. This means they will help diminish environmental damage for their own kids and also save money on future bills.
Ok little ones, here are some simple tips to help get on the environment's good side!
STANDBY TO SWITCH OFF
When you're leaving a room make sure you turn the light switch off. A bright room with no one in it is a waste of electricity!
Also when you're finished with your Playstation, Xbox, computer or TV make sure it's completely powered off. The little red light is not your friend!
THINK WHILE YOU BRUSH
Turning off the tap while you brush your pearly whites can save up to 750 litres of water a month!
BORN IN A BARN?
When you leave or enter a room during the colder months make sure you close the door behind you. It will make you nice and toasty while also keeping the heating bills down!
PLUG OUT TO SAVE
A fully charged mobile phone or a fully charged laptop use about 60 per cent of the power it consumed while charging if left plugged in.
This is not only bad for your device's battery life, but it is also a waste of electricity.
Taking a short shower on average uses 25 litres of water, whereas a bath can use up to 95 litres. It's much more efficient to have a quick shower!
