“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Here are some tips on how to save electricity and reduce your carbon footprint.
Usually after we charge our phones we just take the phone from the charger and leave the charger plugged in, and the socket on. Leaving the socket on means that the current keeps flowing and electricity flows to the charger even when your phone is not there. This wastes electricity therefore make it a lifetime commitment never to leave your phone charger plugged in and do not leave the socket switch on. This goes for the laptop charger and all other charges that one may have.
MICROWAVE AND TELEVISION
Standby uses up to 10% of the average households electricity. Modern microwaves have clocks on them which require the microwave to be plugged in even when not used. One could simply have a wall clock and switch the microwave off to save electricity. As for televisions, they are always left on standby mode and not power off. It is the little things we turn a blind eye on that could save us electricity while saving the planet.
Turn off lights when not in the room, switch to energy savers, use “task lighting” – turn off ceiling lights and use table lamps, track lighting and under-counter lights in work and hobby areas as well as in kitchens. Use natural light where possible.
