The West Michigan Environmental Action Council has created Project Light Change in honor of Earth Day 2010. 5,000 CFL low-energy-use light bulbs will be distributed from Earth Day through April 30th. The goal is to help people save on their light bills as well as help them use less energy. Infact, the CFL bulbs use 75% less energy than a standard bulb.
Several schools in Muskegon will be distributing the light bulbs to residents in their area via door-to-door distribution. Mission for Area People, and Love In the Name of Christ, will also be giving them to the people who visit their food programs such as the food trucks.
The West Michigan Environmental Action Council is a non-profit organization located in Grand Rapids. Their mission is to educate and provide tools to Michigan businesses and citizens to help with environmental protection. They will also be hosting the Get Clean, Go Green Earth Day celebration on Saturday April 24th at the Twin Lake County Park. There they will have a guest speaker, information booths and earth friendly products.
