Transcript of Steps to Saving our environment

Steps to Saving our Environment! Energy Conservation Step 1 Turn off the lights. Simple as that sounds, turning off lights and other electrical appliances when you leave the room can save you hundreds of dollars and literally tons of carbon emissions each year.
Step 2 Contact your local electricity supplier to see if you qualify for an energy audit. If your electric usage is high enough, your utility company will pay to have an energy auditor examine your home and make recommendations on things you can do to improve your energy efficiency Step 3 Step 4 Lower the temperature on your hot water heater. Whether you heat your water using electricity, oil or gas, lowering the temperature on your water heater a few degrees will inevitably save you money on your energy bills. Switch to fluorescent bulbs. Today's compact fluorescent bulbs cast much nicer light than those glaring tube fluorescent lights we see at school. Step 5 Hang your clothes out to dry. It'll conserve energy, cut pollution; save you money and your clothes will smell better. Buy Energy Star appliances. Energy Star appliances use at least 10 percent less energy than regular appliances, plus many utilities offer rebates of $50 to as much as $250 if you replace an old appliance with an Energy Star appliance. Step 6 How to Conserve Water
Water is important because it supports all terrestrial life. Although our earth is covered by a massive amount of nearly three-quarters of water, only one to two percent is usable to support lives. Even if you are surrounded by many water sources you can always do your part in the environment. If you're interested in conservation and protecting the environment, learning to conserve water is a great way to make a positive impact.
The following steps to conserving water may not seem like much, but when a variety of these are done together they make a HUGE difference.
Simple steps to conserving water are as follows: 1.Keep Your Plumbing in Good Shape - Ensuring your plumbing and septic systems are in good conditions reduces the chances of losing water due to leaks or disrepair. 2.Brush & Clean with the water off - Wet brush, apply toothpaste then turn off the faucet while you clean your pearly-merchandise. Fill the basin for washing or shaving. These are super-duper easy way to save water every day. 3.Get Low- Install a low-flow showerhead to reduce your shower water use by 20 to 60 percent. 4.Aerators On - Put aerators on all your faucets. They reduce the amount of water but add air bubbles to the flow remains lively. This way you can reduce your household water flow by two gallons a minute. 5.Sink Is the G-spot - Wash fruits and vegetables in a bowl, and fill you sink to wash and rinse dishes, instead of running the water. 6.Water when the sun is low - If you live in a warm climate and must irrigate your grass, do it as close to sunset or sunrise as possible. This saves water that would evaporate in the heat of the day and it’s better for the grass too. 7.Sweep sweep - Instead of rinsing your driveways and sidewalks, sweep them. 8.Fully Loaded- Only wash a full load; this goes for both clothes and dishes. Waiting until you have a full load maximizes efficiency and reduces wasted resources. 9.Save Me- Purchase water-saving appliances, such as front-loading washing machine and low-water-use dishwasher. 10.It’s Barrel Full - Use a rain barrel to collect water from your roof's downspout to irrigate your garden. These steps do not need to me followed in this order.
In the end these steps are easy to follow and will make a difference to the planet and to your water bill. Saving Don’t You Like It?
