How can we help?
Turning off everything uses electricity when it is not needed. Unplugging all the electrical devices even if they are turned off because they continue using power. Reducing the usage of non-renewable sources of energy and depending more on other renewable sources. Forgetting about the technological development and using the clothesline like your grandmother to dry your clothes and make them fresh and last for a longer time. Using fans and opening windows instead of using the air conditioner that consumes a large amount of electricity. Replacing the traditional light bulbs with LED lights and compact florescent lamps which are more expensive but last longer and consume less energy. Depending on the natural light from the sun during the daytime through using glass windows. Replacing the electronic machines that we use at our homes for exercising with real bikes, walking and running around our homes. Washing several pieces of clothes at the same time instead of washing a small number of pieces several times. Replacing heaters with blankets and quilts while sleeping.
Fix your faucets and toilet. Turn off the faucets when they are not needed. Reduce the space inside the tank of your toilet or control the amount of water that it needs. Reduce the amount of time that you spend in the bathroom for taking a shower. Fill the dishwasher before running it and avoid using it several times. Use a sponge and bucket for washing the car. Use low flow faucets to reduce the amount of water that you get.
