Your kids can help you save energy, too!

ai_kidssaveenergy_2

One of the best gifts we can give our future generations is to educate kids today about simple and easy ways that they can save energy and live a greener lifestyle.

Start small, with one family energy saving effort each week. When you make it a cooperative family effort, kids feel a sense of accomplishment and belonging each time they take action to save energy.

Print and post this short list of simple lifestyle changes for them to try at home:

  • Turn off lights and electronics when you leave a room
  • Unplug chargers when portable electronics are fully charged
  • Keep doors to unused rooms closed
  • Turn off the water while you brush your teeth
  • Take five- to ten-minute showers instead of baths
  • Don’t hold the refrigerator door open
  • Close drapes, use fans, and turn thermostat up to 78-80 degrees
  • Consolidate errands and cut out some car usage. Walk, ride bikes, carpool, or get a scooter.
