Here’s a quick tip to save energy in the wintertime.
The next time you feel a chill and go to prepare yourself a warm cup of tea don’t fill up the entire kettle. Instead, use the mug you plan to drink from as your “measuring cup” and pour the exact amount of water you need into the kettle. That way, you won’t be using any more energy than what is necessary to heat up the water.
Boil away, make some tea, get cozy, and stay warm!
