Fixed the refrigerator door gasket to keep cool air in the fridge.
If the door gasket is open, then cold air is leaking out and energy is being wasted.
What was your simple green act for the day?

another energy saving tip for refrigerator users would be - making sure to keep the food covered...
Thanks for the tip.
Good for you! It really makes a great deal of difference if you do small things like this around the house! Also, if you don't already know this, your refrigerator is the one appliance that uses the most energy because it has to keep cooling all day long.
One more thing you can do is to put full gallon water bottles into your refrigerator or freezer where you don't have food. The reason for this is to absorb the cold and keep the refrigerator cold after the door has been opened. This is really helpful if you have a refrigerator that is larger than you need it to be.
Also, if you want to check into buying a more energy efficient refrigerator here's a pretty explicit page on Energy Star rated refrigerators http://www.refrigeratorpro.com...
Nice. Thanks for that tip and the link.
Anytime. I love the idea of what you are doing and would love to help out
with content any time I can. Just let me know.
I can also fill you in as I put up info on solar refrigerators and the like
if you are interested.
I was doing a lot of talking about "going green", but what was I doing?
So I posed a challenge to myself to perform one simple green act a day for a year and to document them to hold myself accountable.
These are simple green acts that you can also do without rearranging your daily lives.
