How to Help? It's a Piece of Cake 2 April 2015 | Posted in News

Have you ever noticed that when you go to a party there is a cake? A big chocolate cake that says: Happy birthday Fred! At the end of the party, the cake is gone. Why? Because everyone took a piece of cake. It doesn't matter how big or small because the cake is gone. Now let's imagine that the cake is made of carbon dioxide. If everyone takes a piece of cake, that big lump of coal is gone and won't be released into the atmosphere. Here are some ways to eat your piece of cake: 

1.Use CFL 12 lightbulbs
2.Use cold water to wash your clothes
3.Install solar panels or get your energy from a solar farm
4.At maximum your shower should only take five minutes
5.Get a modern toilet that saves water
6.Get a small compost bin in your kitchen

7.Bike when you can
8.Turn down your thermostat when you're sleeping or when you're not at home
9.Get educated about climate change
10.Recycle and compost as much as possible
11.Drive at the speed limit
12.Turn off the lights when you're not using them
13.Put hay or another insulants in your walls and  in your roof to decrease the amount of energy you use to heat your house
14.Eat less hamburgers or become vegetarian
15.Don't Flash your lights on and off because every time you do the amount of energy it takes to turn on a light is equivalent to five seconds of continuous use
16.Buy storm windows to trap heat better leading to less of an energy usage

We will update this list every time we find a new idea to save the environment!
