Small Ways to Save

  • Cough and sniffle season is upon us! One way to avoid sickness is to wash your hands often. To save water and energy, turn off the faucet as you lather up the soap.
  • Save energy when you have a snack attack by deciding what to eat before opening the refrigerator door. When the door is open, the appliance is wasting energy.
  • Pre-rinsing dishes before loading them in the washer is a waste of water. If you have a newer dishwasher, save water and energy on water heating by skipping this step.
  • Cook your holiday casseroles in a glass or ceramic pan rather than metal. When you use these materials, you can lower the temperature of your oven around 25 degrees without increasing cooking time.
