Keeping the ice maker running
Bea says: “There's actually a little heater that keeps the motor from freezing. It uses energy for nothing. Just turn the ice maker on, then once the freezer is filled with ice, turn it off.”

Bea says: “We just say no to plastic bags, water bottles, anything that can easily be replaced by reusables. Don't use paper towels, use rags. Microfiber cloths eliminate sponges, so you don't have to use them either."
