  How many can you find around your school?
Whilst you are doing this, consider the following questions:

  Is there a water cooler in the staffroom?
Water coolers use a lot of energy to keep the water cool. Do you think this is a wise use of electricity?
Is there a dishwasher in the staffroom?
If so is it used properly?

Dishwashers should be well stacked before they are switched on. Do your teachers do this?
  Is the photocopier left on all the time?
Photocopiers, left on over night, use enough electricity to photocopy 5300 extra copies each night.
Have the televisions and videos been left on standby during the school day?
Televisions and videos each use about £7 of electricity a year when left on standby.
