Be Cool

There are some good tips on the Global Cool website for living green.

Such as:
  • Turn your heating down by 1 degree.
  • Don't leave electronics, appliances, and gadgets on "standby." Turn them off instead.
  • Unplug chargers when you are done, so they won't drain energy.
  • While cooking, don't boil over.
  • Fly less often.
  • Turn off lights when not required (should be obvious, but people still don't do it!). If you don't need them on then switch them off, they waste so much energy.
  • Switch to a supplier that generates electricity through wind, water and solar power.
  • Take a low-power shower.
  • Buy better bulbs such as compact fluorescent bulbs.
  • Pack the freezer, empty space wastes energy.
  • Park the car, take a walk.
  • Use better home insulation.
  • Wash your clothes at a lower temperature in the washer.
  • Buy locally grown foods.
