Turn off the lights!!, 281°

If you're not in a room, why keep the light on? The less lights that are on, the less energy is being used. You don't need to light up an empty room!

Quite like the lights off when I'm in the room anyhow!

My father followed me around the house during my childhood and teenage years reminding me to turn off the lights whenever I left the room. It drove me crazy then, but definitely trained me to always, always, always turn off lights when they are not in use.

Furthermore, make smart lighting choices. Spot lighting is not only great for ambiance, but also for the energy grid.

I believe it is all about education! But it is never too late to do something :) I think people need to get practical reward to take actions for the environment. I wish energy company would help motivating people to reduce their consumption by making them save money. Unfortunately, this money is their profit...

Position yourself next to the window like I do and you probably don't need the lights on at all during the entire working day.
