Unplug From School, UNPLUG Your Stuff!

December 20, 2012

Happy Holidays to all! Before you leave for break, be sure to UNPLUG!

Follow these tips to save energy, save money, and prevent pollution while you’re gone:

  • Close and lock windows (take out your window fan if needed)
  • Shut off all the lights (overhead and desk)
  • UNPLUG all electronics. Cell phone chargers, laptop chargers, TVs, etc. all use a fair amount of electricity even when turned off (known as “phantom loads”).
  • Empty your trash & recycling bins or you may come back and find some unpleasant smells and critters in your room.
