break-your-old-habits1What an impact a few changes we make in our everyday lives can have on the environment!

I found it amazing what I read today. Seems so trivial, but what a difference a simple change could make!

“If every home in America replaced just one incandescent light bulb with an Energy Star qualified CFL, in one year it would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes. That would prevent the release of greenhouse gas emissions equal to that of abut 800,000 cars.”

So, love CFLs or not, I think we all have a spot or two in the house – or outside, where we can replace an incandescent bulb for a CFL.

Personally I can’t take the plunge and live without the warm light of incandescents, but I’m making small changes here and there.
