Hi, I’m Pierre the Penguin! I was named after the founder of St. Louis, Pierre Laclede. This city sure has changed a lot since that other Pierre established it in 1764 as a fur trading outpost. I came along much later and, having grown up on the coast of Antarctica, have been surprised at how cold the St. Louis winters can be.
A long time ago though, my mom and dad taught me how to stay warm while saving my energy.
You can too! Did you know there are easy things you and your family can do to save (or conserve) energy at home? Not only does conservation help the environment, but you’ll also be helping your mom and dad save money on their natural gas bill! Take a look at these tips and see how many you can do in your home.
