The Eco Warriors have been carrying out a survey across the school to encourage classes to reduce the amount of energy we use. We have been dropping in to check that classes are being energy smart by switching lights, computers and visualisers off when they are not in use.
Reducing our demand for energy is the cheapest and easiest way to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. It has been estimated that with widespread action, we could reduce our electricity demand by one fifth by 2050. This will have a positive effect on our climate and could even reduce global warming.
“I enjoyed Switch Off Fortnight because we got to see which classes care about saving electricity. All the classes got better at remembering to turn things of when they weren’t being used.” Chenthuran 5N
