There are several reasons for why I’m writing this article. The first is to shed light on the climate crisis that we have put our self in due to the inefficient use of energy in the last decades. The other reason is to get people to implement certain (most of them very simple) tips and tricks to contribute positively to the earth. We are the generation that has do something about this matter.

  • Check all the light bulbs in your house and see if they are energy saving. This is probably the first and easiest step one could make to make a building more energy efficient and cheaper.
  • Switching old electrical equipment is the second thing you should consider. These old electrical devices end up using a lot of energy, as most of them are extremely inefficient energy-wise.
  • TV’s, computers and similar electrical devices that is put in stand-by can actually consume large amounts of energy. This is why turning them completely off is one of the most important energy conservation techniques in this article.
  • Products that aren’t recycled should not be purchased, as they are very bad for the environment.
  • Recycle other product as well. This can be among many other things, bottles, old bike cycles and so on.

  • Consider buying a reusable bag that you can shop with (or several bags for that matter). Think how many bags you pick up at the store every time you are there and calculate how many of those you use every year. You see the picture.
  • If you’re not already buying household products in bulk, you are not only missing out on a lot of money, but this actually saves the world for a lot of packaging material.
  • Alternative energy sources are getting more and more popular for every year that passes. Some people use them to cut their electrical bill in half, while others actually produce large amounts of energy and sell back to the grid. You might want to look into geothermal energy pros and cons, as this is one of the most important ones.

The energy crisis is slowly creeping up on us and steadily gets worse. There’s no doubt that the earth will be a totally different place in a hundred years if we don’t act fast and do something about this. We hope that the points in this article might have given you some ideas to step forward and contribute. We need all the help we can get.
