Mount View - 2010

Contact: Antonia Kousouris

Team Name: Waste Warriors

Team Type: Class

Campaign Goal:

Our goal was to educate our school and community in the energy wasted when things are plugged in that are not in use. We called it phantom energy because it is still flowing even though we can't see it. We wanted to help reduce our schools energy use by 10% from the previous year.

What did we do?

We encouraged classes to unplug things not in use such as radios, fans, microwaves.

The Best Part

The best part was the enthusiasm with which students got involved.


For safety there was a lot of adult involvement, which helped raise awareness at home.

Comments about the Campaign
