Brilliant way to save energy!


I just landed in Sweden. The train ride was scenic, the people are super friendly, but I must admit...the first thing that has truly impressed me about this country is one of the ways the hotel is conserving engery. Such a simple design and execusion...you need to slide and keep your room key in a slot by the door in order to put your lights on. When you leave you take your key and the lights shut off. No unnecessary lights left on and wasting energy. Simple + Brilliant! The US needs to start taking notes from our European neighbors. These little energy saving methods really add up.
