SAVE THE EARTH AND MONEY

来源: 作者: 发布时间:2010-03-11  

Imagine asking the dustman to cart off 480 double-decker buses jam packed with stinking, rotten rubbish.  Sadly, that is the problem our environment faces every day.  Twenty four thousand tonnes of waste is dumped daily and that includes a staggering 15 million plastic bags, enough to fill 25 buses.  Some of the waste like sewage, finds its way into the harbour, polluting the waters and killing marine life.  But the damage doesn't end there.  Rotting waste releases harmful gases into the air which threaten everyone's health.  Something has to be done.  Everyone has a part to play, including you.  The following "green tips" shows how you can save the environment and save money at the same time.  Try your best to follow the advice listed below and encourage your friends and family to do the same.  If everyone plays their part, we can all join together to save the environment and look forward to a happier, healthier and cleaner future.

CUT YOUR ELECTRICITY BILLS

 

1.           Make sure you turn off all lights and electrical appliances like air-conditioners and heaters when you are not using them. 

2.           Replace, where appropriate, electrical appliances with Grade 1 or Grade 2 Energy Labels, They are cheaper in the long run. 

3.           Use automatic timers to control appliances to avoid wasting energy.

 

Lighting  

4.           Use the minimum number of lights. Turn off lighting if it is not needed. 

5.           Use sunlight as far as possible.

6.           Use energy-saving bulbs which are cooler, like halogen bulbs, fluorescent tubes and energy efficient compact fluorescent (CF) bulbs rather than the conventional incandescent bulbs. The CF bulbs give off a warm, bright light but use 75% less energy and last up to ten times longer than the conventional incandescent bulbs. 

7.           Keep bulbs and fittings clean for maximum brightness and reflectiveness. 

8.           Use low-wattage bulbs in areas where bright light is not necessary.

9.           Turn off lighting if it is not needed. Affix "Save Energy" stickers near the switch as a reminder.

10.       Replace conventional electromagnetic ballasts of fluorescent lamps with electronic ballasts.

11.       Use dimmers where possible (except for fluorescent lamps).

12.       Use non-opaque, light-coloured lamp shades.

13.       Choose a light coloured, high-reflectivity decoration scheme for your main living areas.

 

Computers

14.       Set PCs to hibernation mode or standby mode where applicable.

15.       Turn off the master switch of printers connected to PCs when not in use.

16.       Turn off the monitor when you leave your office, even for a short meeting.  "Screen saver" does not save much energy (less than 10%).

 

Air-conditioning

17.       Avoid installing your air-conditioner in direct sunlight which could jeopardize the cooling effect.

18.       Seal the gaps around doors and windows and keep them closed when air-conditioners are in use. 

19.       Draw curtains or blinds to keep the sunlight out. 

20.       Avoid blocking the input and output air vents of your air-conditioner. 

21.       Pre-set air-conditioner to 25.5oC which is a comfortable energy efficient temperature.  For every one degree Celsius cooler you set the temperature, your power consumption will increase by 10%. 

22.       At night, set your air-conditioner to "low cool" and use the timer to switch it off about one hour before you wake up. 

23.       During summer, clean your air-conditioner at least once a month to ensure it works efficiently.

24.       Apply anti-ultraviolet film to window glazing exposed to strong sunlight.

25.       Use fan instead of air conditioner as far as possible.

 

Refrigerator  

26.       Select a fridge size best suited to your family's needs.  For a family of three to four, 140 to 170 litres is normally suitable. 

27.       Ensure the door seal is completely air tight and make sure the door is not left open when not in use. 

28.       The food section is best kept at a constant temperature of 3oC and the freezer compartment at 0oC.  Every degree lower means a 5% increase in running costs. 

29.       Make sure your fridge is in a cool place away from direct sunlight, an oven or other sources of heat. 

30.       Always keep the cooling coils at the back of the fridge clean. 

31.       Allow hot food to cool before placing it in the fridge. 

32.       Don't over-crowd your fridge's shelves, allow cool air to circulate freely.

33.       Thaw frozen food by putting it in the refrigerator section the day before cooking.

34.       Empty and switch off your fridge if going on a long vacation.
