The Groupon Guide to: Conserving Energy
Thanks to lazy scientists who refuse to create (or destroy) new energy, it's necessary to conserve the energy we do have. Here are some tips to save energy and the current planet Earth:
- Turn lights off when leaving a room. This makes your exit incredibly dramatic for those still in the room.
- Transform a spare bedroom into a compost heap using old eggshells, dead leaves, and molted hair. Your dirty pile of garbage is now a source of pride!
- To conserve hot water, only purposely scald yourself when you've done something really, really wrong, such as misspell a word.
- Instead of an energy-hogging dishwasher, use dozens of paper plates each day.
- Only run your lawn mower indoors when you absolutely want to.
