One Billion Bulbs asks YOU to save money and power


How would the world change if one billion incandescent bulbs were removed, and replaced with compact fluorescents? One Billion Bulbs says, why sit around wondering - let's do it! Everyone who removes an incand and replaces it with a CF is asked to make note of it at onebillionbulbs.com, where they have a global map showing how much progress has been made. So far, over 9500 bulbs have been registered, primarily in North America, Sweden and Norway. Only 39 bulbs changed in the UK - so pop over to the store, come back, and register! [GT]
