Write it: Write a letter to your future self. Tell yourself how you are going to save energy and be a smart consumer.

You should also write about the benefits to your future self for making these changes.

Your letter could include some of these points:

  • Things you have decided to use less.
  • Ways you will stop wasting energy and money.

Share the detail with your family, then ask them to give it to you in six months so you can see if you stuck with the changes. Hopefully it will help remind you and your family of ways to be energy smart.
