What I can do

Lots of little energy conservation savings lead to big reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. If you are not already doing these things, give some of these a go:

  • When not in the room, turn off lights
  • Turn off the computer if not in use and activate the computer sleep mode
  • Put on another jumper instead of turning on a heater
  • Sometimes you can ring, text or email a friend rather than being driven around the neigbourhood
  • When possible, walk, ride a bike or catch public transport rather than being driven around
  • Recycling helps
  • Buy things with less packaging
  • When going out, take your refillable sports drink bottle rather than buying a drink
  • Shorter showers also reduces our use of energy.
