Low carbon tips suggested for Earth Day



Low carbon tips suggested for Earth Day
Consumers and businesses looking to reduce their carbon output to mark Earth Day have been given a range of tips on how to make small changes to better the environment.

The Kentucky Kernel notes that recycling one aluminium can save enough energy to run a television for three hours, while observing that the energy used to light an empty office overnight could provide the energy to heat water for 1,000 cups of coffee.

Furthermore, the energy wasted by leaving a computer monitor on all night wastes energy that could microwave six whole dinners.

"Plug home electronics, such as TVs and DVD players, into power strips [and] turn the power strips off when the equipment is not in use," the paper urges.

It also advises drivers to reduce the clutter in their car and avoid driving above the optimum speed of 60mph, after which fuel efficiency quickly drops.

A number of international celebrities have expressed their support for Earth Day, including actors Kevin Bacon and Zach Braff and musician Questlove from hiphop crossover outfit The Roots.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18563235-ADNFCR
