Six Things a Girl Scout Can Do to Save the Planet

  1. 1. Six Things a Girl Scout Can Do to Save the Planet 1. Discover where all your electricity goes. Hunt down your energy hogs. It’s an adventure and it might give you an idea for a birthday gift for mom or dad. 2. Drive Less Americans are only 4% of the world’s population, but we use 20% of the world’s energy. What will happen when all the Chinese buy cars? There will not be enough air to go around. 3. Turn off the lights Lights use a lot of electricity and are responsible for a lot of air pollution. 300 coal plants around the world produce electricity just for lighting. They produce CO2 that will last for a 100 years. 4. Install LEDs or fluorescent bulbs. They use 70% less electricity. In some big homes they save enough money to send a girl to school in a poor country. You can also convert all your nightlights and flashlights to LEDs. 5. Chart your electricity bill How is your family doing? Put a chart on your refrigerator every month. Just doing the chart will help your family use less. Maybe your school could also do a chart. 6. Speak up If you see a business or school running the air conditioner too much; if you see a restaurant with lots of food waste, say something. Speak up, it is your planet.
