Miscellaneous
3.) Green Tip: Save Santa by saving energy this holiday season
Santa’s North Pole home is melting, but you can help by taking a few simple steps to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. When you leave for the holidays, turn down thermostats, securely close windows, and unplug chargers, printers and non-essential equipment. Switching everything off with a power strip is the easiest way to get in the habit. Always turn off lights and computers when vacating a room. Make a New Year’s resolution to replace all incandescent bulbs with fluorescent or LED bulbs.
