The goal of OneBillionBulbs.com is to be a catalyst for positive, meaningful environmental change by:While it's goals are similar to other bulb campaigns, One Billion Bulbs plans to create buzz and get bulbs changed through an internet-only (or internet-mostly) approach. Their first effort at building a bulb-changing viral machine involves a cost-savings calculator that webmasters can install on their sites and blogs. They've also got the usual web activism tools: banners and email.
- educating people about the environmental and economic benefits of replacing standard incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulbs
- encouraging a large number of people to replace standard incandescent light bulbs with CFL light bulbs
Their first phase involves getting 10,000 bulbs changed in the US: according to site's milestone map, Idaho (of all places) is the closest to reaching the phase one goal (it's 75% of the way there), while Alabama has registered the highest number of changed bulbs (60). We're still a ways from a billion, but every effort counts in the overall challenge to reduce the carbon footprints of our homes and businesses. ::OneBillionBulbs.com via jfoster100 at Hugg
