Energy Conservation with Cookie Monster.
No, no, I don’t spend all my free time watching Sesame Street episodes on YouTube, I swear. But a friend of mine posted this video on Facebook the other day and it tickled my fancy, both because it brought me back to the good old days and because, well, it’s pretty funny. Monsterpiece theatre? Come on now, that’s good stuff.
Anyway, this particular Sesame Street clip, “Conservations with my Father,” featuring the famous Cookie Monster, focuses on ways to reduce your environmental impact through simple steps like turning off a dripping faucet or switching off the T.V. when you’re not in the room. We know that there are much more effective ways to reduce energy consumption, like air sealing and insulating your house, or driving a more fuel efficient car, and that a slew of energy saving products like light timers and smart power strips can help correct our inevitable oversights. Still, it’s important not to lose sight of the small stuff - particularly when considering the developing habits of our youngsters.
So without further ado, we present to you “Monsterpiece Theatre: Conservations with my Father.”
