Here are some activities you can do to help save energy. Choose ones that you can do yourself or with your family and friends:
Count how many light bulbs you use in your home. Ask your parents to replace some of them with compact fluorescent bulbs.
Make a list of all the car trips your family takes in a week. At the end of the week, look at the list. Which trips could your family have combined? Which trips could your family have avoided by walking or riding a bike?
Do a science project on a renewable energy fuel.
Visit a recycling center. Find out where the recycled materials go.
If you don’t already, start recycling at home. A good place to start is with newspapers, aluminum and steel cans, glass bottles and jars, and plastic soda and milk containers.
Go to the library and read about more ways to save energy.
Tell your friends how to save energy.
