A tip 

Sustainability Tip

Ban the Incandescent

“If every household in the US replaced just three of its incandescent light bulbs with energy-saving designs and used them for five hours per day, it would reduce emissions of carbon dioxide by 23 million tonnes, reduce electricity demand by the equivalent of 11 coal-fired power stations and save $1.8 billion.

Given that investing $450 million could save $1.8 billion, it is hard to understand why anyone would still choose incandescent bulbs.”
