Let’s All Conserve!


Jeremy Phelps, Staff Writer

Hello, my name is Jeremy and today I am going to tell you how to save energy, water, and fuels because I was inspired by my Science teacher Mrs. Brown to think about conservation!


1. Turn off the lights when you are not using them because that will save electricity and money since we have to pay for the electricity in our homes.  If it is day time, consider using the natural light of the sun if you have windows in the room you are in.

2. Turn off the water when you are brushing your teeth.  There is no need to let that water run! Washing dishes? Fill up the sink with water instead of leaving the water running the whole time.

3. Try not to take a long shower because that will waste more water.  Scrub, scrub and out!


4. Do not use too many fossil fuels. Set your gas heater a few degrees cooler than what you normally would.  Carpool if you can. Maybe even consider solar panels for your home because the sun’s energy is renewable and free!  Even though fossil fuels are renewable, people use way more than can be renewed in a lifetime.


Do you have more ways we can all help conserve energy?  If so, leave me a comment with your ideas!
