Sustainability Corner - Fun Facts About Energy
Here are some fun facts that could help to reduce the energy bill in your own home today!

1.  Did you know when you turn on an incandescent light bulb, only 10% of the electricity used is turned into light. The other 90% is wasted as heat.    

2.  A compact fluorescent light bulb uses 75 percent less energy than a regular bulb and it can last up to four years.

3.  Some new refrigerators are so energy-smart they use less electricity than a light bulb.

4.  Every year, more than $13 billion worth of energy leaks from houses through small holes and cracks. That’s more than $150 per family.

If you are interested in making our world a better, more sustainable place then come along to our meetings, in P2 on Thursday lunchtimes.
