EcoEmails

This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at muffinkimber@gmail.com

It is better to change the lights bulbs
in your house
to energy saving light bulbs

than to get rid of your car!
Car only ranks 1/3 in devices responsible for global warming.
The most effective thing you can do is switch your home lighting to compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs).

CFLs use 75% less electricity
than your standard tungsten light bulb while giving you the same amount of light output.
Meaning lower electricity bill!

“If every American household replaced just one light bulb with a CFL, it would reduce global warming emissions equal to taking nearly 800,000 cars off the road!”
