New Years Resolution: Change the World!

Mortgage and Lending with Citizens First Financial

 Sometimes something so small and simple comes along that just blows me away with the proportion of my energy involved to what it will do to my environment.  So my New Years Resolution is to Change the World one lightbulb at a time!  As my light bulbs burn out in my house, I am replaceing each one with a CF energystar light bulb. Did you know that:

Every light bulb or fixture you change to a CF energy star will:

  • Use 1/3 of the energy of a standard incandescent light
  • Last up to 10 times longer
  • Save an average of $30 or more in energy costs over its lifetime
  • Prevent 450 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions over its lifetime
  • Help preserve our energy resources

My goal this year is to gently encourage everyone in my sphere of influence to jump on the bandwagon, and share my New Years Resolution.

There is even a pledge you can take - check this all out at

Congratulations Karl, on being aware of this simple energy solution.  I wonder how many other simple ideas that are easy to implement are out there, and we just aren't taking advantage of them because we don't know about it?  I feel like I just walked in from the dark ages, on this light bulb idea.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
