Unplug electronic devices!
Many appliances have a standby mode during which they are not providing useful output but still consume energy. Standby power is electricity used by appliances and equipment while they are switched off or not performing their primary function. Leaving appliances in standby mode consumes a significant amount of energy and is roughly responsible for 1% of global CO2 emissions Read more info here.

Register your pledge to unplug electronic devices the next months below and help with combating climate change. All single pledges combined will generate a huge contribution to saving polar species and their habitat. Small actions, big difference.

Thanking you for saving energy

If you have successfully fulfilled your pledge to unplug we will send you a link to an exclusive photograph taken by Daniel J.Cox/Natural Exposures.

You can frame the photograph or use it as your wallpaper (when your equipment is turned on) – it’s our thank you for your hard work to reduce carbon emissions and help save polar species.
