Hi, my name is Avishan Ketheswaran. I am 11. I live in 325 Lighthouse Rd. There are four members of my family my little sister, My mom, my dad and of course me and we care about the earth a lot. .

We only use light when it is dark and not in the daytime. If we are in one room then the light is not on in the other rooms. To save energy we use the clothesline to dry his clothes instead of drier in the summer. We don’t charge stuff when we sleep.

- I block the vents in bedrooms that are not being used and keep the doors closed so air conditioning or heating won't be overused. In summer the thermostat is set at 23 degrees and winter is 19.
- I only run the dishwasher when it is full and I only do laundry on the weekends.
- I use plastic food containers like peanut butter for buttons, screws and any other small things.
-I am gradually changing over all the bulbs in my home to more efficient LEDs.
