Most people would rather have five dollars now than ten dollars next month. One Billion Bulbs is doing its best to retrain these hoarding instincts.
The goal of One Billion Bulbs is to convince users that switching from incandescent to compact fluorescent lightbulbs makes good environmental and economic sense. They already have some retail heavyweights on board: as Andy Rubin, Wal-Mart vice president for sustainability, told NPR’s Robert Seigel, Wal-Mart currently saves $8 million dollars a year by using CFLs in its in-store fan-deliers.
One Billion Bulbs invites you to reap the benefits of CFLs in your own home, and sweetens the deal with a little interstate competition.
Get ready to screw your way to a greener future.
Hat-tip, Seth Fitzsimmons.
