Take a walk around your house and take note of how many items are plugged in. Are you using those items right now? What about when you are at work or on holidays? As long as electronic devices are plugged in they are using energy. Unplug them! Make it easy by plugging TVs and stereos into power bars and using the on/off switch.

What about black boxes that power phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and rechargeable tools? Unplug them, too! Plug in your electronic devices only when they need charging or when you want to use them.
