Energy Conservation

Save Energy

Reduce your own and the college’s energy footprints through simple behavioural changes

  • Only boil as much water as you need in the kettle
  • Cover the pot while waiting for water to boil
  • Turn off appliances and lights when you are finished
  • The oven heats up quickly and does not need to be preheated for long
  • Eat fresh food rather than frozen
  • Buy local produce to prevent transport costs, with the added benefit of less packaging (it’s also cheaper!)
  • Avoid wasting food by planning your meals
  • Try one-pot cooking

Save Water

Water is a precious resource, please conserve it

  • Don’t leave taps running
  • Drink tap water rather than mineral/bottled water
  • Fill up the sink with water rather than washing plates under a running tap
  • Don’t use running water to defrost frozen food
  • Use washing-up liquid sparingly
