The environment is as vital to our existence as water is to life. The environment is what keeps us alive and if we do not take care of it, we are all doomed, animals and plants alike. The ways through which one can help save the environment include:

  • Not exceeding the recommended electricity consumption once needs
  • Using energy saving fluorescent bulbs
  • Combine tasks at once rather than doing them separately so as to efficiently use energy
  • Turn off any electrical appliance in the house when not in use
  • Use energy saving appliances like air conditioners and fridges that are optimised to use low energy
  • Use the right oil for the car to avoid unnecessary emissions that come with using the wrong oil.
  • If you can regulate the heat in the house by opening doors and windows rather than turning on the air conditioner
  • When driving out, make sure you know exactly where you are going to avoid having to drive aimlessly
  • Use a thermostat for your fridge, air conditioner and any other type of appliance that uses a lot of power
  • Repair any leaks in the house and only use a minimal amount of water. You do not have to flush the toilet every time you take a short call.
  • Invest in a washing machine that allows you some level of control on things like water level and as such.
  • Cover the pan or cooking pot when cooking to make the process faster by trapping some of the heat inside the lid. Use the right size of pans and pots in order to use less energy while cooking.
  • Ensure that the water is as close to the kitchen as possible in order to save yourself the energy and the hassle of having to carry it a long distance from the source.
