10 Tips to Win:

  • Use natural light during the day
  • Shorten showers
  • Use fans instead of cranking your AC
  • Turn off lights and unplug all devices when you leave your room
  • Use LED lights instead of incandescent bulbs
  • When washing your hands, turn off the water while you lather
  • Unplug your phone or laptop as soon as it is fully charged. It will save electricity - and your battery life!
  • Don’t use the toilet as a garbage can. You waste about 2 gallons of water per flush!
  • Wash only full loads of laundry in cold water (colors setting).
  • If you see a leak or drip, report it to maintenance.
