  • Get started with these 10 simple steps:

    1. Replace incandescent light bulbs with ENERGY STAR CFLs or LEDs.
      Remember to turn off the lights when you leave the room.
    2. Wash your laundry in cold water and run full loads whenever possible.

    7. Take shorter showers.
    8. Unplug appliances and electronics when not in use or use a power strip.
