Climate Action Collaborative offers LED Swap

Contact: John Gitchell, Eagle County Environmental Manager, 970-328-8766, sustainable@eaglecounty.us

April 19, 2018 – April is Earth Month and members of the Climate Action Collaborative invite all Eagle County residents to save money and cut climate pollution by exchanging two inefficient old-tech lightbulbs for two high-efficiency LEDs. 
 

Residents are encouraged to bring in two incandescent or compact-florescent bulbs and exchange them for two LED bulbs free of charge any time between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday, April 23 through Friday, April 27 at the front desk of the Eagle County Building, located at 500 Broadway in Eagle, or at Walking Mountains Science Center, located at 318 Walking Mountains Lane in Avon.

The LED lightbulbs produce a warm white light and are dimmable, so they are ideal for living room lamps and kitchens. Replacing two LED bulbs saves $16 per year on electric bills and cuts 230 pounds of air pollution. Switching to LED lighting is one of the easiest and lowest-cost ways to reduce air pollution.
