Save Some Energy

Posted by Phil Ugel on

We all heard growing up 'Turn off your lights when you leave the room," but aside from saving money on the electricity bill, there are other important reasons to be responsible with our energy consumption. Electricity comes from the burning of non-renewable fossil fuels. Not only does the burning of them emit harmful pollutants into our ozone and promote global warming, there is also no way to make more of these precious fossil fuels we rely on so heavily. It's so easy to forget how important it is to be conscious of our energy consumption, so we made a short list of easy ways to cut down on the amount of energy we are using on a daily basis.
Blue Sky homes are the most beautiful homes, especially when energy isn't being wasted! Get our Tree Of LIfe Tapestry as seen here, at
1. Just like Mom said, turn off the lights when you leave a room! We get so blue when we walk into our happy home and no one is home, but the lights have been left on.
2. Unplug computer, camera, and phone chargers when they are not in use. Even when they aren't plugged into your device, they are still putting out the same amount of energy as if they were charging. What a shame!
3. Use low wattage and energy efficient light bulbs. There isn't a huge price increase, they last longer, and they use less energy. It's a win-win situation!

4. Make sure that your car is in good shape and not emitting excess pollutants into the environment. Emissions testing is mandatory in big cities but not in rural areas. If you live in a rural area, we encourage you to be proactive and ask your mechanic to make sure that your car is producing a healthy amount of emissions.
5. Use cold water to do your laundry. Not only will that help keep your colors brighter, it avoids the heating of water, in turn saving energy.
What? Did you think we had things other than tie-dye in our laundry? :)

By turning these 5 simple steps into habits, you are doing your part as a responsible energy user. Tell your friends too, they might not know how making a few changes can make a difference.
