Get the kids involved and make a game of it. There are many easy ways in which you can encourage children to help save energy around the home.

  • See how many unused appliances they can find that are on standby and wasting energy!
  • Encourage them to play outdoors for the day rather than sitting indoors on their electronics.
  • When leaving the house see who can find the any lights or appliances that have been left on.
