Conserve Energy

Since most energy is dependent on fossil fuels, such as gas or oil, using energy adds to environmental pollution. There are many things you can do at home to help conserve energy and thus lessen pollution. Every little bit helps!


By doing your part in conserving energy you will know that you are helping to make a difference in the world. Your actions may inspire others as well!

Step It Up:

There are so many ways to conserve energy; try these ways below. Share these ideas with your friends, too, and compete to see who can save the most energy! Here are some ways you can save energy at home:

  • Turn off lights that aren't in use
  • Unplug appliances when they aren't being used
  • Watch less television
  • Air dry your clothing
  • Use the computer less
  • Only run the dishwasher when it is full (or better yet wash and dry by hand!)
  • Recycle and reuse!

Keep It Simple:

Try just one thing from the list above. Then, gradually add a new thing in each month. When you successfully start making these changes you will get excited and want to make more. Share that success with your friends and family and encourage them to try it out, too.
