Save Money and Energy

Batteries
After you take a dying battery out of a digital camera, try to use it in a low-energy appliance, such as an alarm clock, or remote control.

If you have kids with lots of electronics consider investing in rechargeable batteries. It’s not uncommon for a good brand of rechargeable batteries to last for 5years. Imagine how much you’d be saving over time.

Electricity
Think about getting a power strip for all of your electronics that are in your living room, and then turn it off when you go to bed.

When you’re not in a room turn the lights off.

When the weather is nice hang your clothes out on a line to dry.

Replace your incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. CFL’s use a lot less energy than the traditional incandescent bulbs and they also last longer.
