How to explain Earth day to your children

On the 22nd April 1970 there was a global change, many laws to help the environment were created and people from all over the world made a promise to protect our Earth. Now each year we celebrate Earth Day and work together to try and make a cleaner environment for Mother Nature.

 

Research has shown that the microwave is more energy efficient than the hob; the microwave’s heat waves are directed on food inside and not on heating the air or container around it. This means that most if not all of the energy generated is used to make your food cook.
