Make One Small Change: Use More CFLs

TAGS: None

Replacing just one incandescent bulb with a compact fluorescent lightbulb (CFL) will make a big difference, especially if everyone did that.  It would reduce carbon emissions equivalent to taking 1.3 million cars off the road, or not burning 29,900 railcars of coal.See Fast Company How Many Lightbulbs Does It Take to Change the World? One. And You’re Looking at It  The impact on the environment is unbelievable.  You can’t make a better economic investment for your home.  Replacing one bulb is estimated to save you $66 over the lifetime of the CFL.  I replaced three bulbs with CFLs last year.Will Wal-Mart Change the World Selling CFLs? Let’s Wonder…  I’ll replace another six this month.  I hope you join me.
