Saving The Environment By Saving Electricity
Bills

Introduction
  • Today, very few people can turn a blind eye to
    the state of the earth, of our environment, and
    say they dont care.
  • The effects of global warming can be felt by
    people even in the coldest of climates. It is not
    something that is merely discussed on television
    anymore, but something that is experienced by
    all.
  • While not everyone can take time off from their
    work, family, and other commitments to devote
    their lives exclusively to saving the
    environment, the fact is that there is a lot that
    the average householder can do even without
    stepping out of their homes!
  • In fact, not just homes, even people in offices
    too can do a great deal in saving the environment
    and all through a very simple thing - saving on
    electricity bills!

How Saving Electricity Can Help Save the
Environment
  • Since the majority of electricity in the world
    today is still generated from natural gas, oil,
    coals, which are found in the earth, requiring a
    great deal of drilling or mining to be made
    available to the energy sector, saving on
    electricity goes a great deal in reducing the
    impact of our energy consumption on the earth.
  • These processes require not just exhaustive
    mining and drilling works, which are by itself
    damaging to the earth, they also require a great
    deal of transportation, which requires the
    burning of gasoline, which in turn contributes to
    the generation of gases such as methane and
    carbon dioxide, which increase global warming by
    trapping heat inside the earth.
  • If every single person did their best to save on
    electricity, the amount of electricity consumed
    would drastically reduce, which in turn would
    lead to lesser reliance on fossil fuels for
    generation of electricity. This by itself would
    help in reducing global warming considerably.

Advantages Of Saving Electricity
  • Apart from the benefits to the environment, there
    are also other benefits to saving electricity.
  • The first one that directly benefits everyone is
    the savings in energy or utility bills. The
    amount of money you can save by saving
    electricity every month can even go into a saving
    fund for your children or used for other things
    that bring you much joy.
  • When you save electricity, such as by switching
    off your television for an hour a day, you also
    get other benefits such as increased bonding and
    communication with your family members or more
    time to socialize with your friends. You will
    also find that you have more time to spend on
    your hobbies which you may have neglected for
    years. You could also find yourself taking the
    time to go outdoors and enjoy the beauty of
    nature or even just go for a walk or hit the gym
    instead, all of which have direct benefits on
    your physical and mental health.
