Energy Saving Tips

Energy Saving Tips for Tinryland NS for December-

Don’t over do it with Christmas lights as a smaller display of lights will still look great and if you are buying lights, buy the energy efficient ones. All lights should be left on only at night when they will look best and remember when to turn them off.
On the subject of a greener Christmas, remember Reduce, Recycle, Reuse!

Reduce- try not to buy too much this Christmas, especially food. Energy is used to produce food, if the food is thrown away, that energy is wasted.
