What Happens When the Lights Go Out?

This past December our electric bill was over $500! If there are about 730 hours in a month, shutting off my house would save me less than a dollar. That’s not much, but that’s the beauty of the Ripple Effect. There are about 24,920 households in my town. If only half of them observe Earth Hour, that would be a savings of over $8700 in this town alone.

Happy Earth Day!

If you shorten your shower by ONE MINUTE, you can save 10 gallons of water for every shower. If you shower daily, that’s 70 gallons a week. If you get 1 other person to shorten his/her shower by one minute, that would be 140 gallons of water you would be responsible for saving. Be a planet hero!
