Lighting is a huge part of our lives. We use it in our homes, our workplaces, and our schools on a daily basis, and for a big part of the day. Can you imagine the opportunity for energy-saving if we all switched to energy efficient light bulbs?
You can start by getting enlightened and making the switch!
What You Can Do
Choose the right bulbsRead labels carefully and choose an energy efficient light bulb such as a CFL (Compact Fluorescent Bulbs), Halogen, or LED (Light Emitting Diodes).
Spread the wordThe impact of switching to energy efficient lighting can be a great one if we get our entire community involved, ready to make the switch. Spread the word to your network on your blog, website, Facebook, Twitter, or Instgram (on the right). You can either re-post our content or create your own with the hashtag #MakeTheSwitch.
Dedicate your Earth Hour Switch off to the causeEarth Hour is more than just a one-day event. Earth Hour is a movement and a platform to raise awareness about climate change and sustainability, and vowing to go beyond the hour in our daily lives. This year, pledge to switch to energy efficient bulbs before the Earth Hour global switch off at 8:30pm – that way, when you switch back on, you’ll be doing it the LIGHT way.
This Earth Hour...
Choose the right bulbs
Making the switch can significantly lower carbon emissions per year, equivalent to removing 165,000 cars off the road annually.
