Change The World

So you want to make an impact on the world, well consider a new weekly campaign called Change The World Wednesday's introduced by Small Footprints. It is a weekly challenge focusing on how we can collectively work on a single issue each week to increase awareness and engage positive action to reduce our impact on the world, i.e.- be a little more GREEN. The concept is simple but effective in the sense that if we all do just a little bit each week, as a whole we can begin to have an impact and the greater the exposure the greater the impact. So share this challenge with your friends & family and check back for the new challenge each week or stop by Reduce Footprints. This weeks challenge is to focus an making our homes and businesses more energy efficient so if you have not already done it, then replace the light bulbs in your home or office with CFL's or better yet an LED light. LED's are the wave of the future and unlike the CFL's contain no Mercury as some people are concerned about the Mercury content in CFL's if they get broken inside a home. If your concerned about CFL's then use them in outside fixtures and use the LED's inside the home. Taking these steps will not only cut down on energy consumption whereby reducing your carbon footprint it will also save you money. So Live Smart and start changing some bulbs. If you already have - GREAT - then help spread the word by blogging about CFL's or LED's and promoting this weekely challenge by contacting five other bloggers to spread the word and email this blog & post to your friends.
P.S. - I had forgot to mention that recycling your CFL's is very important as not to contaminate the environment. Home Depot has a CFL recycling program so take your old CFL's to Home Depot instead of tossing them in the trash. Thanks.

Hi TC
thanks for the tip on the recycle, I recycle everything I can, and am getting ready to teach an innovative "green" energy program locally. I am not really just a fairy you know! LOL!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Sorry about your mother and her death! My husband is doing much better and plans to be off medical leave by next week. My only problem with these new light bulbs are the slight humming sound they make! It drives me crazy! And when you turn on a light you have to wait for the light to get to the correct brightness! Enjoy your day!

I'm glad your using them. Maybe use them in areas of the house it won't bother you & outside. Check into the LED's instead. All the best to your husband.

Hi TC,
We have changed ALL of our bulbs and have found a dramatic decrease in our electric bill.
Great blog by the way!

I had no idea that you were supposed to recycle these! Thanks for the info and thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday for my special SITS feature day!

Thanks for visiting my blog. This is interesting. Sadly, it's very hard to recycle anything depending on where you live.

Thanks for the sweet comment you left for me! And I'm so glad you shared that Home Depot recycles those because I never know where to take them. Looking forward to reading more about you!
