Carbon Fast for Lent: Appliance Inventory

The Fifth Tuesday in Lent
“Any old iron? If it’s on its last legs replace old electrical appliances for energy-efficient models, they could save a third of the energy.”

I typically use appliances until they die. I don’t like throwing away things that still work or buying new stuff before I need it. But today’s Carbon Fast for Lent activity gave me an excuse to post a Degas image I like, so all is not lost!

Today’s mitzvah: Is it time to replace any small appliances with something more efficient?

Don't forget to recycle the old one!
