Here we share some easy ways to conserve energy:

Solate your fridge, for its own good: If your fridge is beside a vent, stove or dishwasher (which give off a lot of heat) your fridge will have to work hard and use more energy to keep its cool. If possible, keep the fridge isolated and reap the financial rewards.

Clean with vinegar:
It's a natural way to kill bacteria and germs.

Use a microwave: Less energy is used by a microwave oven than a conventional one.

Low energy appliances: Energy star qualified appliances use 10 to 50 percent less energy than standard models.

Do not use plastic:
Whether it’s bedding, furniture, flooring or wall and window coverings, shop green and leave the plastics behind. Draperies, window blinds, and shades are all now available in natural fibers such as cotton, hemp, linen, wood, reeds, silk or bamboo.

Eco scents: Instead of chemicals and synthetic fragrances, opt for 100 percent essential oils and non-aerosol scents.

Turn off tap: When brushing your teeth, don't forget to turn off the tap.

Get a spider plant: Place in the bathroom to purify air.

Buy biodegradable pots for your home and garden: Buying plants already potted in bridgeable materials, like bamboo, coconut, rice or wheat fiber, rather than plastic, will eliminate another step in the recycling process.
