CFL Lights...

We learned that one thing we can do to help us go green is to change out regular light bulbs and replace them with CFL bulbs. As a homework assignment, we made tallies of the types of light fixtures we have in our homes. We also identified the light that gets the most use. Our plan is to replace the bulb in that fixture (if possible) with a new CFL bulb. Even one bulb can make a difference and hopefully our families will consider changing more bulbs in their homes. The bulbs were donated to our school from Lowe's in Carol Stream. If you're not sure you want to switch your old light bulbs out for CFL bulbs, maybe this video will help convince you to use them:
