Use the microwave
When reheating food, or cooking small portions, use the microwave instead of the oven or range.
**How this helps**
Because it takes so much less time to cook in the microwave, you use a lot less energy — even if the microwave draws more power. According to Energy Star, cooking small portions or reheating food in the microwave can save up to 80% of the energy used if you reheated in the oven.
Take the first step.
Start small. Be conscious of the impact your actions have on the environment and figure out what you can do to lessen the blow. Calculate, conserve, and offset.
