Change your light bulb

Join the Renewable Revolution

Greenpeace offers something simple on the day of the Environment.

Have you ever thought why a lightbulb gets so hot? The energy in wasted in incandescent light bulbs, 90% of the electricity used is converted into heat. That’s why they are so inefficient.

The initial design of the incandescent light bulb appeared over a century ago and is still used in most households in the world. However, thirty years ago, there was another option on the market, the energy saving light bulbs. These bulbs are spending 80% less energy and last up to 12 times more, save money on electricity bills.

Sure you think that changing a light bulb is a too small gesture to fight such a big problem, but you should know that:

Whenever you use energy saving light bulbs, you are saving the emission of 20 kg of CO2 into the atmosphere each year. The replacement of incandescent bulbs in the European Union would save at least 20 million tonnes of CO2 per year, which would close 25 plants using dirty energy.

Join the Renewable Revolution. We propose the following steps:

  • Replace your home all incandescent light bulbs for energy saving light bulbs.
  • Encourage your friends, colleagues, neighbors, etc. to do this.A
  • Act, call on MEPs to ban incandescent bulbs.
  • Change starts with small things. Here's how.

I once read that the original light bulb was engineered in a way so as to never "burn out", and then once "industry" realized they could make money off of disposable light bulbs, they began creating more delicate filaments that would pop after a certain amount of use. I'm not sure as to the veracity of that story, but I wouldn't be surprised.

I changed the bulbs a couple of months ago and let me tell you that you can really note the difference especially when the bills come and you see that there is a huge reduction if the consumption of energy, so I really support this change and I hope to see more people doing it
