Whether or not you have the patience to actually go through the message behind this infographic, one thing is certain– the light bulb is harming our planet. It doesn’t matter what kind it is, it adds to carbon dioxide production. Now, we’re not telling you to stop using the light bulb. But it would greatly help if each one of us were more conscientious about turning them off when not needed or replacing the old incandescents with LEDs.
Keep in mind these things:
- To stop global warming, we must cut carbon emissions by 70% by 2050
- Lighting contributes 20% of the world’s energy use
- Making use of LEDs can reduce that to 4%
Did that light bulb in your head just switch on? It should. Love the planet, be lighting efficient.
