It amazes me to hear what a great impact a few little changes in we make in our everyday lives can have on the environment.

I just read today that if every household in the US replaced just one conventional incandescent household 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 about 800,000 cars.

With CFLs now available for exterior use, I decided to exchange the bulbs in our outdoor wall lights. Can’t tell the difference!  Same warm, welcoming light at the front door.  Probably won’t notice anything on our utility bill either- yet. But I’ll keep going on my project, one CFL at a time.

CFL Bulbs Save Money
