Climate Cops never leave the TV on standby... it wastes so much energy

Case notes:

Have you caught anyone drying their washing in the electric tumble dryer when it’s a nice day instead of using the washing line outside?

Did you know? In the UK alone, we could save over £230 million on our electricity bills if we didn’t leave appliances on standby or plugged in when they’re not being used. (Source: CRed)

To energy saving light bulbs, the Climate Cops say YES... when it comes to electricity they use so much LESS

If every house fit three energy saving light bulbs, it would save enough energy to run the country’s street lights for a year.

A survey found that the average household has up to 12 gadgets or appliances left on standby or charging at any one time. What a waste!

Lights on when there’s no-one there... us Climate Cops would never dare Climate Crime:

Have you walked into an empty room with the light already on? Can you uncover who the last person was to leave the room without turning it off ?

Case notes:

Wasting water is not the sign of a Climate Cop... water is precious, we must never ever waste a drop Climate Crime:

Have you witnessed anyone wasting water? For example, did they leave the tap running whilst brushing their teeth? Or, did they have a bath when they could’ve had a shower?

Case notes:

Did you know? Wasting energy is not very smart because it not only causes needless pollution but it also costs us money. Would you just screw up your pocket money and throw it away?

Putting hot food in a fridge or freezer is in fact a crime... Climate Cops know that waiting until it’s cool is the right time Climate Crime:

Have you seen anyone commit this crime? If it’s hot, more energy will have to be used to cool the food down.

Did you know? A dripping hot water tap wastes energy and in one week wastes enough water to fill half a bath! (Source: Energy Saving Trust)

Climate Cops say, keep windows clean to allow in the natural light... it can help to heat the room without having to put up a fight! Climate Crime:

Anyone guilty of not unplugging the charger after they’ve finished charging their mobile phone?

Case notes:

Did you know? If your family are shopping for new kitchen appliances like fridges, dishwashers and washing machines look out for the Energy Saving Recommended logo. Those products will cost less to run and help prevent climate change.

Did you know? You can also stop heat escaping through windows by having double glazing. This can reduce the loss of heat by half compared to single glazing. (Source: Energy Saving Trust)


Boiling a kettle full of water for one cup of tea... is such a waste of energy, I most certainly agree Have you spotted anyone heating up more water than they actually need?

Leaving the room door open on a cool day... really isn’t the Climate Cop way!

Who’s guilty of letting the heat escape by leaving the windows and doors open on a cool day?

Every cup your family boils releases 25 cups of carbon dioxide.
