TURN OFF COMPUTERS AT NIGHT Report Abuse
By turning off your computer instead of leaving it in sleep mode, you can save 40 watt-hours per day. That adds up to 4 cents a day, or $14 per year. If you don't want to wait for your computer to start up, set it to turn on automatically a few minutes before you get to work, or boot up while you're pouring your morning cup 'o joe.

CHANGE YOUR LIGHT Report Abuse
If every household in the United State replaced one regular lightbulb with one of those new compact fluorescent bulbs, the pollution reduction would be equivalent to removing one million cars from the road.

Be sure that the new bulbs are disposed of properly, they contain mercury, this is very dangerous to you and the water table etc.

DO NOT PRE-HEAT THE OVEN Report Abuse
Unless you are making bread or pastries of some sort, don't pre-heat the oven. Just turn it on when you put the dish in. Also, when checking on your food, look through the oven window instead of opening the door.
