Recommendations for how to take action

  • How To Start

    Identify the appliances you only use once a day, like your toaster or coffee maker. These are great vampires to slay by unplugging them.

  • What Comes Next

    Invest in smart power strips. They can help you reduce the unnecessary flow of energy to appliances when you’re not using them.
