If you have been following the election recently (or indeed the news in the last two years), you will know that the two main issues in today’s society are the environment and the economy. We could also say that the two main issues in your world are YOUR economy and YOUR environment.
Most of us want to ‘do our bit’ we actively recycle, we buy organic, we use public transport or cycle, we are aware of our carbon footprint – and we WANT to help the world. After all, this is the legacy that we are leaving our children.
It is quite a daunting undertaking; ‘to save the world’. Although it wasn’t so long ago, that very few of us recycled and the collective consciousness was ‘what difference will it make if I do it?’ Now it is almost unthinkable not to recycle – it is practically antisocial not to!
We have found that in order to ‘save the world’ the little things that we do at home make a huge difference when practiced collectively by society. One of these ‘little things’ is changing your light bulbs to energy saving light bulbs. It might not seem like much but you will be reducing your Co2 emissions massively.
For property developers it is now compulsory to build houses that have fittings exclusively for energy saving bulbs. There is a shift happening in society towards the greater good, but most of our energy savings involve some sort of sacrifice on our part – to recycle costs us a little more time, to cycle to work instead of drive costs us a little more energy, the list goes on.
Energy efficient light bulbs are one of the few examples of and environmentally friendly alternative that requires no sacrifice; in fact, it benefits us as well as the environment because our electricity bill is dramatically reduced. That doesn’t mean you can leave your lights on!
If you want to ‘do your bit’ and save money, you simply have to change your light bulbs to energy efficient light bulbs. It is not rocket science. Remember it is the little steps that we all make that create the fundamental shift to a better society.
