The is one of the best ways to save energy. You can purchase appliances that are both environmentally friendly and energy efficient. A good way to conserve electricity is by turning off all the lights and electrical appliances when they are not in use. You can also wash your clothes in a washing machine by using both warm and cold water instead of hot water.
2. Commute using public transportation or walking
If you need to go outside of your workforce accommodation, take a look at other means of transportation. Singapore is one of the most efficient public transportation systems, and the greenery that surrounds the communities makes it an ideal environment to walk to your destination. Walking helps to reduce CO2 emissions that destroys the ozone layer, and also helps you stay healthy.
