Save energy, save water, save cash - and maybe win some, too. It's that easy. Here's the scoop on how to green your house:
- Water off. Lather. Water on. Rinse. Repeat.
- Brush your teeth with the water off - you can save up to 25 gallons per month!
- Only wash full loads of laundry, use the cold-water setting - you can save up to 1,000 gallons per month!
- Re-wear clothes instead of washing after each use.
- Unplug unnecessary appliances.
- Some appliances can use up to 85% of their power on standby - this includes computers, TVs, phone chargers, hair dryers & straighteners, and entertainment systems.
- Phantom loads (leaving your stuff plugged in) can add up to 43,000,000,000 (yes, that's billion) kWh of U.S. electricity consumption annually.
- Time electricity usage to use during off-peak hours.
- Use compact fluorescent light blubs and use 75% less energy.
- Use a drying rack to dry clothes instead of a dryer.
