Top Ten Tips for Kids

There are some simple things that you can do to help stop global warming. Here are our Top Ten Tips to start reducing your environmental impact today:

 

Turn off the lights when you leave a room. Use fluorescent bulbs  in your room.

 

 

 

 Shut off computers when not in use.

Use a power strip for your TV, video game systems, and other electronics. Flip the power strip switch to "OFF" when you're not watching TV or playing games. Even when you turn off your TV or DVD player, it's still using energy. Using a power strip will make sure no energy is being wasted.

 

 

Unplug chargers when not in use. 

 

 

 

 

Take shorter showers. Heating water uses energy.

 

 

 

Walk short distances or ride your bike instead of asking for a ride in a car.

 

 

 

Close the blinds on a hot day if the sun is shining in. Dress lightly instead of turning up the air conditioning or use a fan to stay cool.

 

 

 

Dress warmly inside your house when it’s cold instead of turning up the heat.

 

 

 

Wait until you have a lot of clothes to wash before using the washing machine. Don’t use the machine for one item just because it’s your favorite shirt and don't throw your shirt in the dryer just to get a few wrinkles out.

 

 

Plant a tree.
