John Hawkins, England “When Mozambique was decimated with floods in 2000 it was called a natural disaster. Some of us in London thought differently. Our prayers were filled with a determination to make a change in our choices about energy use, reducing our contribution to climate change for the sake of God’s creation.”
Install LEDs. Increasing energy efficiency is the first step in stewarding the resources we’ve been given. Replace extinguished bulbs with efficient, long-lasting LEDs.
Most of the buildings we encounter in our day-to-day lives are artificially lit. Changing the type of light bulb we use is a small act that, cumulatively, makes a big difference.
LED bulbs generate light through light-emitting diodes, rather than burning a filament, as in conventional incandescent bulbs. As a result, they are much more efficient. In fact, the average LED light bulb uses about 75% less energy than a conventional bulb.
Avoiding excess energy in turn reduces the fuels burned to produce it. Making the transition from incandescent or fluorescent bulbs to LEDs is an easy but impactful way to save energy and protect the climate we all share.
