Think Before I Print

Energy

Unplug It!

I’ll unplug appliances and electronics when I’m not using them, because many will still draw electricity even when they are turned off. Even better I’ll connect multiple appliances (computers, printers, toasters, coffee makers, etc.) to a power strip I can turn off. This is estimated on average to save $100 a year on energy costs and 900 kwh of energy!
