Lights, Camera, Save!!!

By: Chaaya

Many homes in the U.S and around the world are for saving energy, and everyone is for saving money. One way many households do just that is by using energy star light bulbs. You can buy them in your supermarket. There just about everywhere. Energy star light bulbs can pay for themselves in about a month. According to Environment Defence Fund if each household replaced three 60-watt incandecent bulbs with energy star ones it would be like taking 3.5 million cars off the road. Imagine it! Also some of the good things about them are that last ten times longer than regular bulbs. Compared to the regular light bulb it uses 75 % less electricity than the average bulb. A energy star bulb saves over $30 in it's lifetime. Can you think about how much that you would save if all the light bulbs in your home were energy star light bulbs?
