  • TURN OFF THE LIGHTS WHENEVER YOU LEAVE A ROOM IN YOUR HOUSE!
  • TURN OFF THE RADIO, TV, COMPUTER, AND VIDEO GAMES WHEN YOU STOP USING THEM.

  • TAKE SHORT SHOWERS. They use less hot water than a bath.
  • CHECK FOR PROBLEMS MOM AND DAD HAVEN'T SEEN. Like dripping faucets. It takes energy to heat the water.

  • SHARE RIDES WITH FRIENDS TO AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES.
  • DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT FROM THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE OPENING THE DOOR - then close the door quickly afterwards.

  • COLD IN THE HOUSE? Don't turn up the thermostat. Try wearing a sweater or sweatshirt.
