Look After Our Planet Earth

In the Tread Lightly Caravan we learnt how we can take care of our planet Earth. We learnt how to save power, water and other renewable resources. I learnt an awesome new fact that power is made mainly from water, wind turbines and solar energy. Electricity passes through copper wires and reaches our homes. So we need water and cannot waste it.

When you brush your teeth turn the tap off or you could lose many litres of water. We need water to make electricity and also to drink and be hydrated.
You should always have short showers upto 2-4 minutes.When you get out of the shower make sure you turn the shower tap off so you don’t waste water.

Eco light bulbs are the best lights to use because they don’t use that much power so you can save money.

During the session we used an Eco bike to make power for tools and  to make light bulbs turn on.We could also use solar panels for power instead of using electricity.

Another important part of our session was on how to get rid of e-waste. We learnt that Hard Drives have motherboards in them to make computers work using power.

On the whole it was a valuable session in the Tread Lightly Caravan.
