KARIN'S LIGHT BULB CHALLENGE - a little something you can do to help reduce consumerism and energy consumption.
SUMMARY OF THE CHALLENGE
Over the next year, strive to give people an energy-saving light bulb on occasions that usually require gifts (e.g. birthdays, Christmas, etc).
WHY TAKE THE CHALLENGE?
1. Reduce unnecessary consumer purchases. If you're struggling to find someone the "perfect" gift for an occasion, chances are they don't really need anything at all. By getting them a light bulb --- something most people do eventually need --- instead of an otherwise unnecessary gift, less waste will end up in our landfills.
2. Reduce energy consumption. Energy-saving light bulbs use up to 75% less energy. By making your home more energy efficient, you are helping save the environment. Energy resources will be protected for future generations.
TAKE THE CHALLENGE
- Replace one of your incandescent light bulbs with an energy-saving light bulb. - Over the next year, give TWO people an energy-saving light bulb on occasions that usually require gifts (e.g. birthdays, Christmas). - Encourage others to take on the Challenge. - Add yourself to the list of challengers.
