Cook efficiently

Matt Berger Nov 27, 2010

For meals, serve organic and locally grown foods as often as possible. Do not preheat your oven. It wastes significant amounts of energy. Instead, place your food into a cold oven and slightly extend the cooking time. Use washable glasses and dishware, then clean them in a full dishwasher, rather than by hand, to conserve energy-intensive hot water.
