Easy Ways to Be More Energy Efficient

In today’s world, we are constantly hearing about the environment and ways to be more energy efficient. I like to think I am doing my part in this and teaching these tips to my kids will help their future. Here are some ways you can be more energy efficient:

  • Use ceiling fans: Instead of turning on the a/c for the entire house, as it warms up. try using ceiling fans. This will help save energy and save on your bill!

  • Turn off and Unplug appliances, when not in use. If you’re not using them, why have them on? Appliances are total energy wasters!

  • Wash Clothes in Cold Water: This will help you save on your energy bills too!

  • Pay Your Bills Online: Don’t let your mailbox get cluttered with all the bills, pay your bills online. This helps save paper and is more environmentally friendly too!

  • Use Canvas Grocery Bags: Cut down on waste with those yucky plastic bags. I hate seeing those flying through the air or on the ground somewhere. Canvas bags are so easy to use and better than plastic.

  • Use Solar Lights: Using solar lights so easy to do and helps the environment!

I love my Luci light from DIRECT ENERGY’S GIVE BRIGHTER 12 PLAN. A Luci light can brighten a room for up to 12 hours after being charged in the sun. It’s inflatable and durable. It also has several settings including a flashlight or a safety light. It’s perfect to take camping or would be great in an emergency.

When you sign up for this plan, electricity plan MPOWERD will deliver a Luci light to someone without access to regular electricity so they have the light they need. You’ll get your own Luci light delivered to your home, too!

MPOWERD’s non-profit community partners distribute Luci lights to people in need in countries including Kenya, Haiti, Philippines, and Nepal. Through Direct Energy’s efforts to date, they have helped distributed over 10,000 to countries around the world! There are over 1.5 Billion people around the world in developing communities don’t have access to reliable, safe, and affordable sources of energy. The Luci light will help them to support their families, and also to give medical care to the sick and injured people.

With the Give Brighter 12 plan from DIRECT ENERGY, you have the chance to #GiveBrighter and make a difference in the world.
