Electricity/Gas Savings

- Try washing clothes in cold water; soaking them the night before may help fight stains.
- Dishes can also be washed in cold water, although greasy dishes might need hot water to be cleaned properly. Again, soaking pots and pans before washing will help (you can use run-off water from washing smaller dishes to soak.)
- Turn off the oven or stove 2-5 minutes before your food is finished cooking, and keep the food inside the oven or on the burner.
- When in the market for a new refrigerator, buy the smallest one that fits your needs.
- If you're in the market for a new computer, consider a laptop instead of a desktop as they consume much less electricity (although keep in mind that laptops are much more expensive to fix if a part needs to be replaced.)
- Use a dark or black background for your desktop screen.
