So you’ve heard about global warming and want to do your part to help out by saving energy at home and in your day-to-day life? Tinker Bell, who was recently named the United NationsGreen Ambassador and her fairy friends can help, with great tips and videos on being kind to the environment.

My Energy Smart Home

Tink’s got some tips on saving energy in your very own home:

  1. Turn It Off: When you’re done with a TV, light, stereo or anything else that uses electricity, turn it off to save energy.
  2. Keep It Closed: Close doors to your home, refrigerator and oven. The air conditioner won’t have to work so hard to cool your house and the appliances will use less energy to do their jobs!
  3. Be Warm - Not Hot: Keep the thermostat below 68 degrees in the winter. You’ll be comfortable and your parents will save by running the heating system less!
  4. Look For The Label: Help your parents shop for energy-saving appliances. Look for the Energy Star label (below) on things like refrigerators, washing machines and dishwashers.




All About Renewable Energy

These renewable energy sources will never run out! Find out how they work:

  1. Biomass: Biomass comes from corn and other plants that we turn into fuel, including ethanol or biodiesel to run our cars. We can also make fabric and carpet with biomass!
  2. Solar: Solar energy comes from the sun. Solar panels can make electricity or heat water, and the sun’s electricity can warm up your house!
  3. Wind: Big machines called turbines have long blades that catch the wind and spin to create electricity.
  4. Geothermal: The earth creates heat and steam that we use to make electricity. Geothermal energy is underground and can be close to the surface or deep in the earth’s core.
