Green Tip of the Day: Unplug!
Unplug your electrical devices and gadgets when not in use.
This is probably one of the simplest tips to going green. It doesn't take much effort to just simply unplug, or switch the socket off, your electrical devices when not in use. Many people think that, for example, by siwtching the TV off, you are saving energy. However, what many people don't know is that as long as the TV is plugged into the power socket, it is still taking up energy. That is why, if you're not using them, make sure you unplug devices such as your TV, microwave, laptop (PC), cell phone charger, microwave, and coffee maker. By doing so, you are not only saving 40% of wasted electricity, but you are also saving money on your energy bill and of course saving the Planet.
Go ahead, get going and start unplugging!!!
