Energy Efficient light bulbs required

THE inefficient standard light bulb could be phased out within three years to save up to 800,000 tonness of greenhouse gas emissions in Australia.

Last month legislators in California proposed a "How Many Legislators Does it Take to Change a Lightbulb Act" that would phase out incandescent light bulbs by 2012 in favour of compact fluorescent bulbs.

Quotes from the title link, where the full story can be read from the Sidney Morning Herald. Help bring peace to the planet by using energy efficient light bulbs wherever possible.

It's such a simple thing to do. I've replaced all my bulbs with energy-efficient ones. My daughter taught me to unplug the appliances. I don't unplug everything, but I unplug the coffee maker, fans, toaster oven, chargers, etc. We recycle everything. Every little thing helps, right?

Every little thing helps, right?

This is very true. And everyone does not have to do the same things, at least not yet. Do those that can be done with pleasure, and with a sense of helping, adding more as they feel right.

Soon, it becomes a way of life to be sensitive to the planet's precious resources.

Thanks for visiting!
