As the Mary Lin community got ready to leave for the Thanksgiving Holiday, we created an in-school campaign to “Think Green and Turn off the Juice”! We talked about how when room lights, computers or printers are not being used or when any electronic item doesn’t need to be powered that you should turn it off and unplug. We posted signs in every classroom and turned off or unplugged as much as possible before Thanksgiving Break.
Items like laptops, cell phone chargers, tvs and microwaves should be UNPLUGGED because they continue to draw electrical current even when turned off. These types of devices are called Energy Vampires because they suck up energy! Turning off and unplugging are very simple actions that we can do to help save energy, reduce pollution, and save our planet.
