Welcome to another episode of Change The World Wednesday! This week we're going to experiment with lighting and discover another way to cut back on our energy use. Here's the challenge:
In most homes there are multiple light bulbs used to light a single area. For example, bathrooms usually have a row of vanity lights ... ceiling fans often have three or more light bulbs ... and kitchens typically have quite a few lights (over the sink, over the table, over the center of the room, etc.). So, this week, twist off all but one bulb in each area and see if it works for you. If one bulb isn't enough light, twist on a second ... or a third. The idea, here, is to experiment a little, use only the amount of light that is truly necessary, and save a lot. So, twist them off!
If you've already twisted off as many light bulbs as possible, then please write a post about all the easy ways that we can reduce our energy use.
I think this challenge will be enlightening.
Last week we focused on eliminating food waste. So ... how did you do? Let's see how our Honor Society did:
Waylandcook, from The Wayland Springs Cook, shared that food not eaten by her family gets "composted, fed to the dogs, or to the hogs and chickens".
Tito Dutta, of Songs and Poetries, offered support and kind words.
EcoGrrl from EcoGrrl Speaks stopped by with some great suggestions.
Mrs. Green wrote a wonderful article about how NOT to waste food. Read her article HERE.
Kathryn Magendie of Virginia Kate Sagas stopped by and shared how GMR has gotten better about reducing perishable waste.
Eemilla stopped by and shared a "triple dose" with us.
Our bloggy friend, Alyona K., shared some wonderful ideas with us.
Plainolebob, from Just kicken it around, dropped by.
Le-Chat shared one of her favorite ways to reduce food waste in an article entitled "Look What I Found: My Frying Pan (including recipe)".
Envirovet stopped by with some very nice comments.
Argentum Vulgaris dropped in and gave us a Progress Report. Nice tomatoes, AV!
Ann came by and shared how she uses a bit of psychology to get kids to eat up.
Thanks to everyone who stopped in and participated!
Just a reminder ... everyone who leaves a comment will be included in the Honor Society. In addition, if you write an article (and let me know that you did), I'll Stumble it and Tweet about it ... hopefully we can spread the word and bring traffic to your site.
That's it for this week ... thanks for stopping by! And remember:
WE'RE CHANGING THE WORLD ... ONE CHALLENGE AT A TIME!
