‘Obsessive Switcher Offer’ – badge

Appliances use about 5-10% of the total household energy consumption just by being on stand-by. Obsessively switching off stuff also includes using only the necessary amount of lights, and of course switching them off during the day or when not on the room.

    I like this one – it’s such a good one to bring children on board with too.

    We don’t normally do anything resembling star charts, or reward systems, but we did set up a chart on the wall where everyone in the family (adult and child) could put a point under their name every time we turned something off that someone else had left on unecessarily. And yes – it did become obsessive!

    That’s a cool idea for multiplying the Obsessive Switcher Offer action easily ;). What are the rewards, if you don’t mind asking?

    Well, first I better admit that we fell off the wagon after about a month of it – so a badge would be just thing to get us started again . 😉

    We were going to have monetary rewards. I can’t quite remember how much … but the thing was it just became all about the points in the end and the money/reward went by the wayside. Everyone just wanted to beat each others points.
