In research published by npower Climate Cops parents reported that their children will spend an additional four hours watching TV, the same time again playing games consoles, and a staggering 2.5 hours blow drying and straightening their hair, during the forthcoming half-term.
In an effort to help kids put down the controller, Climate Cops ‘No Power Hour’ is on a mission to keep kids entertained and think green over half-term, by encouraging children to switch off, get out there and try something new and spend an hour each day using no electricity.
Kids are being encouraged to unplug the computer games, put down the TV remote and turn off the iPod speakers and take part in No Power Hour by discovering fun things to do using nothing but their own energy and imagination.
Kids and families can get green ideas by clicking onto npower’s website where they will find interactive games to teach them to save energy, along with wall charts and stickers to keep track of progress made throughout the Climate Cops. No Power Hour mission.
