Due to heavy load shedding in the country, we keep finding ways to reduce the use of energy. We use energy savers and we keep temperature of air conditions at 26. Like this, I believe there are also other ways that can help us, to reduce the need and use of energy which will result in lesser electric bills and global warming.
Like my earlier blog explained, how Indian commodes help in contributing lesser global warming, this time a new idea clicked in my mind. We are usually asked to wear formal clothes at work places as well as in schools, but what if we are asked to wear jeans instead of formal trousers? that could really save our electricity of ironing. Jeans is a very rough cloth that does not need ironing and washing for weeks.
If employees at work are allowed to come in jeans, shorts and T-shirts, it will not only increase the productivity of a company but also save electricity, water and washing detergent. I have noticed that many of those working employees prefer wearing jeans in their off time and they feel much more comfortable in them. If they work in comfortable clothes obviously it will help them to work more efficiently and this will also save individuals from high electric bills.
We have so many different organizations working here and their dress code is formal, if all of them let their employees wear jeans, we can save enormous number of mega watts. If we can declare Saturday off to save the energy for sure we can change this tradition as well, which will not have any negative impact on productivity.
