The ENERGY STAR Change a Light, Change the World Campaign is designed to bring individuals and organizations together in a nationwide effort to save energy and help fight global warming, starting by encouraging a switch to lighting that has earned the government’s ENERGY STAR label for energy efficiency.
Going into its 8th year, the campaign provides a central rallying point on ENERGY STAR Change a Light Day, Wednesday, October 3, 2007. Organizations and leaders from across the nation are encouraged to help mark the day. Individuals are invited to take the online ENERGY STAR Change a Light Pledge, where they can join others nationwide committing to change out at least one light at home. While the majority of campaign participation occurs during the promotional timeframe of October and November, groups or individuals may participate at any point throughout the 2007/2008 campaign year (October 2007–October 2008).
New this year is the ENERGY STAR Change a Light Bus Tour, which will kick off on October 3, 2007, stopping at special events in 10 cities, hosted by ENERGY STAR partners. Special appreciation goes to the Bus Tour’s Sponsors who are making this coast-to-coast outreach tour possible, including national sponsors Motor Coach Industries and JCPenney!
Most of us want to save energy and help reduce the risks of global climate change, but not everyone knows where to start. You can help!
