  4. Lights Out!
    It takes a lot of energy to power the lights in our homes. It’s important for us to have light when we need it, but it is also important for us to be watchful and turn the lights off when we no longer need them. To help conserve energy, start a turn off your lights campaign in your home!  Begin by making it a point to turn the lights off when you are leaving a room. Then, take it a step further by looking around your home and noting places where family members might need reminders to turn off the lights.  At these places, post a fun reminder to turn off the lights.  Finally, implement one lights out family activity per week, such a family stargazing, a campout in the backyard or (with the help of an adult) dinner by candlelight!
