Curbing Electrical Bills - And Helping the Planet!

Going Green: Pull the plug. Even if they are not in use, common household appliances and electronics such as microwaves, computers, DVD players and televisions use power when simply plugged in. This not only increases your electric bill but increases overall energy consumption - a television that is plugged in but not turned on can consume as much as 20 watts per hour. Help curb your energy consumption: unplug items you rarely use, once portable devices are charged up unplug the charger from the outlet, and use electronics only as needed. A simple step to a healthier planet!

Another way to green your lifestyle is to use natural household cleaning products and natural fibers for your home.

This is so simple yet many people still bother doing it.

In my house, I'm the one who pull all the plugs. No one wants to do it :(

20 watts per hour doesn't mean anything. It's akin to saying 20 feet per second per hour.
