  2. 2. Do you know these facts?  Loft insulation can reduce your heating bill by 20%. ENERGY SAVING
  3. 3. Do you know these facts?  For every minute that a fridge door is open it takes three minutes for the fridge to regain the correct temperature. ENERGY SAVING
  4. 4. Do you know these facts?  Energy efficient light bulbs last up to 8 times longer than ordinary light bulbs. ENERGY SAVING
  5. 5. Do you know these facts?  Dirty lightbulbs use up to %25 more energy.  If you cook in a pan without cover, you waste energy.  Don’t put your wet clothes on the radiator! ENERGY SAVING
  6. 6. RENEWABLE ENERGY There are some ways to make electricity without burning fossil fuels. We are surrounded by natural sources of energy, such as the sun and the earth‛s winds and waters. For hundreds of years man has been using these sources of energy to power different types of machinery....  By using the wind to turn a windmill...  ... or using water to turn a water wheel. ENERGY SAVING
  7. 7. RENEWABLE ENERGY Today we can harness energy from the sun, wind, water and the natural heat of the earth to produce electricity with very little harm to our environment. These forms of energy are renewable, which means that they will never run out. Fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas will eventually run out, they are called non-renewable Non-renewable energy Renewable energy Coal Wind power Oil Water power Gas Solar power Peat Geothermal power ENERGY SAVING

  10. 10. Our students prepared a questionnaire about energy Our students asked their families and teachers.
  11. 11. The result  50 % of them wash the dishes by hand.  All of them use energy saving bulbs.  80 % of them use energy saving electronic machines.  70 % of them live in insulated houses.  None of them leave electrical appliances on standby.  4 % of them have a tumble dryer at home.  70 % of them make use of solar energy.
  12. 12. SOLAR GARDEN LIGHTS There are a number of different solar powered lights available at the moment for use in the garden. These lights are highly energy efficient and convenient as do not require external extension leads or special electric fittings. These lights contain solar cells which convert the suns energy into electricity. They charge up during the daylight and light up as it gets dark. They are not usually hugely bright but are less intrusive than electric lights and look nice in the flowerbeds.
  13. 13. ENERGY SAVING TIPS  Don’t Leave Electrical Appliances on Standby. Many of us with use the remote to switch off the TV or stereo, leaving the appliance running on standby. This actually means the appliance is still using up electricity and wastes a considerable amount of energy. By switching off at the main power button, or even the socket, you could be saving both energy and money. Don't leave on your computer, TVs, radios or games that use electricity when you're not using them.
  14. 14. ENERGY SAVING TIPS  Lighting In most homes, about 10-15% of the electricity bill is for lighting so energy saving light bulbs can cut your costs considerably. Traditional bulbs waste a lot of energy by turning it into heat but energy saving bulbs work in the same way as fluorescent lights, the tubes coating glows brightly as an electric current passed through gas in the tube. Always turn the lights off when you leave a room!
  15. 15. ENERGY SAVING TIPS  Batteries Turn off the toys and games that use batteries when you are not playing with them. That will makes the batteries last longer, and you won't need as many or charge them as often.  Heating Open your blinds or curtains on sunny winter days to let the sun shine into your home.
  16. 16. ENERGY SAVING TIPS  Don’t keep your refrigerator door open for long time periods!  Take shorter showers Another simple way to save water AND energy is to take shorter showers. You'll use less hot water - and water heaters account for nearly 1/4 of your home's energy use.  Fix a dripping tap A dripping tap can be not only annoying but if it is a hot tap it can cost you in both water costs and water heating costs.
  17. 17. We prepared brochures about ‘Eco friendly products’ and ‘Energy saving’ and delivered to the families
  18. 18. Water Saving Tips in the Home  Check for home for leaks, hidden water leaks can be wasting water without you even being aware of it. A good way to check for leaks is, if your property is metered, then read your water meter and do not use any water for a couple of hours and go back to check that the meter reads exactly the same. If it does not, there is a leak. WATER POLLUTION
  19. 19. Water Saving Tips in the Home  Turn off tap while cleaning your teeth, shaving or washing your face. You can waste up to 9 liters a minute by just letting the water pour down the sink.  Take a short shower rather than a bath could save you up to 400 liters a week. If you do have baths, just half fill them. WATER POLLUTION
  20. 20. Water Saving Tips in the Home  Fix any dripping tap, you can waste 90 liters a week which will cost a lot more than what might just be the price of a new washer.  Only use the washing machine and the dishwasher when you can put on a full load. It wastes both water and energy to run only a half full machine. WATER POLLUTION
  21. 21. What is water pollution? Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater), very often by human activities. Water covers over 70% of the Earth’s surface. It is a very important resource for people and the environment. Water pollution affects drinking water, rivers, lakes and oceans all over the world. In many developing countries, it is usually a leading cause of death, by people drinking from polluted water sources. WATER POLLUTION
  22. 22. Effects of water pollution  Death of aquatic (water) animals  Dead fish, crabs, birds and sea gulls, dolphins, and many other animals often wind up on beaches, killed by pollutants in their habitat (living environment).  Disruption of food-chains WATER POLLUTION
  23. 23. Effects of water pollution  Diseases Eventually, humans are affected by this process as well. People can get diseases such as hepatitis by eating seafood that has been poisoned. In many poor nations, there is always outbreak of cholera and diseases as a result of poor drinking water treatment from contaminated waters WATER POLLUTION

  31. 31. BENEFITS OF TREES  Produce oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide.  Moderate temperature and rainfall.  Provide food, medicine, shelter and warmth  Support biodiversity DEFORESTATION
  32. 32. European forests DEFORESTATION
  33. 33. Forests in Turkey DEFORESTATION
  34. 34. Forests in Bartın DEFORESTATION
  35. 35. Forest facts *That’s a lot of fresh air! On average, a broad- leafed tree will absorb about 10 kg of CO2 per year. * Willow away the pain! The active ingredient in acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin) originally came from the bark of a willow tree. * Trees are like natural air conditioners. DEFORESTATION
  36. 36. What can we do?  Planting trees is an easy way to help.  We can also live in a way that creates zero waste at school, home and in our everyday lives. "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle! DEFORESTATION
  37. 37. What can we do?  When we recycle products like paper, (after we can no longer use and reuse them) we prevent new trees from being cut down.  When we reduce the amount of energy we consume in our homes by switching off electrical appliances that we aren’t using (such as, lights, TV, radio, computer), or when we walk or bike instead of taking the car, we use less fossil fuels.Using fossil fuels creates air pollution, which can result in acid rain. If we reduce the amount of fossil fuels that we use, we can help save some forests from being damaged by acid rain. DEFORESTATION
