8.) Green Tip: Santa will thank you for saving energy this holiday season

Santa’s North Pole is melting, but you can help by taking a few simple steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. When you leave for the holidays, turn down thermostats, securely close windows and unplug chargers, printers and non-essential equipment. Get in the habit by switching everything off with one power strip. Always power down computers and turn off lights when vacating a room. Make a New Year’s resolution to replace incandescent and halogen lamps with CFLs or LED bulbs. Santa thanks you.
