10 Things You Can Do To STOP Wasting Energy
1. Turn off the LIGHTS when you leave the room.

2. Turn off the COMPUTER at night and on weekends.

3. RECYCLE used paper. It takes 10 times more energy to produce a new piece of paper than it does to make a copy on the second side.
4. Don't leave the TELEVISION on if you're not watching it.
5. Make sure the VCR is turned off after you've finished watching a video.
6. Try to decide what you want from the REFRIGERATOR before you open the door because keeping the door open wastes energy.
7. Shut down COMPUTER GAMES when you're finished with them.
8. UNPLUG appliances such as TOASTER OVENS and TELEVISIONS when you go on vacation.
9. Keep your WINDOWS closed in the house if you're using the air conditioner in the summer or the heater in the winter.
10. Don't take long SHOWERS. 10 minutes or less is all you need. Any longer and you waste energy.
