Change the World Wednesday

Change The World Wednesday is hosted by Reduce Footprints, an awesome blog that I came across through the Green Blog Hop and jumped right into the challenge. I plan to participate every week and hope to inspire and spread the word so that others can participate as well. If you participate, just leave a comment on the current challenge and you will get featured on the following weeks challenge. You can learn all about it HERE!

Let’s jump right into this week’s challenge:

Refrigerators use a lot of energy. We can minimize their impact by making sure they operate efficiently. So this week let’s do a little refrigerator maintenance. Here you go:

Check that your refrigerator is level – the door should automatically swing shut instead of staying open. Check the seal on the door – try closing it on a piece of paper. If you can pull the paper out easily, it’s time to replace the gaskets. Check the back of your refrigerator to be sure that it’s clean – vacuum coils if you have them to ensure that the compressor runs efficiently. How full is your refrigerator? Be sure that it isn’t too full; allow room for cool air to circulate, which will keep everything at the right temperature.

Or …

If you are already diligent at keeping your refrigerator in tip-top condition, please tell us about another electrical device that could run more efficiently with a little “TLC.”

Until next time…

WE’RE CHANGING THE WORLD … ONE CHALLENGE AT A TIME!
