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.
