We need you.
We need your help.
We are fighting a battle to save our Earth, not from aliens or asteroids, but from ourselves.
The very nature of our spirit that drives us to pursue and grow, is the same on that is causing the slow, but definite decay of our atmosphere.
Our thirst for energy and power is creating a toxic mist that is slowly suffocating our planet and,if not controlled and reduced , will have a devastating effect on the future of our species and every other species on planet Earth.
Global warming is no longer the bedtime story it used to be, told by skeptical scientists and corporate consultants.
It is real and it has been real for the last century.
We have developed our technology on fossil fuels long enough and we now are sufficiently advanced to move on from these and toward cleaner and more sustainable sources of energy.
This will take time and will require persistence and strong political will to get it done.
In the meantime, we can all contribute to cutting the carbon dioxide emissions WE are responsible for.
South Africa is the 13th largest contributor of CO2 in the world and the largest on the African continent.
We do love our energy!
But the price we are paying for it is now too high – not only on cost ( although “they” will tell you that our electricity is still cheap), it is the price of CO2 emissions that we can NEVER EVER bring down once we get to the checkout.
Now is the time to start.
I am not asking you to invest hundreds of thousands in a solar system that will get you free from the grid completely , nor tens of thousands , not even a few thousands.
All I am asking is a that you make a small contribution by committing to reduce your energy usage by making your geyser more efficient.
For less than R1700-00 YOU CAN AND WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
THAT IS ALL.
Install a geyser timer so that your geyser does not run 24 hours a day and install a geyser blanket so that you use less electricity to heat that water once your geyser does come on.
These two simple devices will save you(on average) around R200 – R400 per month and cut your Co2 emissions by between 3,5 tons and 6 tons per year!
You will save R 3600-00 ( average ) for an investment of less than R1700.
Look at it this way – if I said give me R1700 now and in 12 months time I will give you back R3600 – WOULD YOU DO IT?
WOULD YOU DO IT KNOWING THAT YOUR R1700 CUT AROUND 4 TONS OF CO2 FROM OUR ATMOSPHERE?
HOW ABOUT BOTH?
IS THAT A GOOD ENOUGH REASON?
WELL, HERE IS ANOTHER PRETTY DAMN GOOD REASON.
You get to give back a tree.
We are not alone on this.
Saving Energy has partnered with Food & Trees for Africa and we are committed to giving them R100 ( or one tree) for every Eco-Warrior package we install.
That R100 is from you. It’s your tree. With your name on it.
For every 3 trees (or R300-00) we give them , we offset another 1 ton of Co2.
We are aiming for 500 trees by June of 2015.
The trees are planted in rural areas and community centres that desperately need them and all I am asking you to do is to save money and cut your Co2 emissions this winter by installing a geyser timer and blanket.
Saving Energy will give you R300-00 off just by liking our Facebook page and posting “I am an Eco-Warrior” on the page!
This will take you about 25 seconds to do!
And you get R300-00 for doing it!
You get to save money, save electricity , save CO2 and save the planet!
Make a change this winter.
Make a choice to make a difference.
For you and your family.
For the generation to come.
And for the generations after that.
Know that if you do this, there is a tree out there that will take 500 tons of Co2 out of the atmosphere over a 15 year period – and that tree has your name on it.
It’s your choice that gives us another tree warrior.
Join our growing army of Eco-Warrriors today.
Make the choice.
It’s the right thing to do.
