But by changing that lightbulb to a CFL version, how much energy are you saving and pollution are you stopping?
Well, since January 1, 2007, this country has:
Purchased over 19 MILLION CFL lightbulbs
Saved over $500 MILLION DOLLARS in energy expenses
Taken the equivalent of over 130,000 cars off the road
Saved almost 2 BILLION pounds of coal
Over 8 BILLION pounds of CO2 have been prevented.
All from spending 18 seconds changing some lightbulbs.
At the website 18seconds.org you can see these figures and a whole lot more. Also, the site lists how “enlightened” each state is in the country…along with state rankings. Pretty interesting stuff!
